Arboretum at Flagstaff, Arizona - Origins and Information


Arboretum at Flagstaff
Located on the outskirts of the northern Arizona city of Flagstaff, the Arboretum is home to several miles of alpine trails, meadows, ponderosa pine forests, gardens and experimental greenhouses. The Arboretum was originally the home of Frances McAllister, who in 1981 donated the land and created an endowment in order to support her dream of starting an arboretum.

The Arboretum at Flagstaff aims to better the understanding, appreciation and conservation of plants and plant communities native to the Colorado Plateau. Today the arboretum is home to over 2,500 species of plants and offers guided walks, raptor programmes and spectacular views of forests, meadows and the stunning San Fransisco Peaks.
