Did you know that Newport, Rhode Island is home to far more professionally accredited arboreta than any other city in the world? It sure is and throughout this week, they are being celebrated.
During Newport Arboretum Week, the public is invited to explore our urban forests, enjoy arboreal events citywide, and take pride in your incredible urban forest.
The Newport Arboretum, New England’s first citywide arboretum, is a special initiative of the Newport Tree Conservancy. The citywide arboretum invites every Newporter to better understand and care for the Living Collections in their own backyards during Newport Arboretum Week, and year-round.
Learn more about all of Newport’s accredited arboreta.
