Transforming the Campus: Evolution of American University’s Arboretum and Gardens

American University’s Arboretum & Gardens are one of DC’s landscape jewels. The 84-acre campus is home to more than 3,000 trees - over 150 different species and varieties - that provide a shady canopy for a thriving layered understory of flowering trees, shrubs, ornamental grasses, seasonal plantings, sculpture, pocket parks, ponds, and streams. Beds displaying striking plant combinations are carefully chosen by landscape architects and meticulously tended by staff arborists and horticulturists.
