An arboretum is a living museum where trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants are cultivated for scientific and educational purposes. The National Arboretum was established in 1927 by an Act of Congress. The Arboretum is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service. Its mission is to serve the public need for scientific research, education, and gardens that conserve and showcase plants to enhance the environment.
