About this Sacred Place

With over 2,500 different trees and shrubs representing 500 different taxa of plants on display, the Brenton Arboretum centers its focus on celebrating trees and encouraging its visitors to learn and care for trees as well. Trees are strategically placed throughout the arboretum, blocking any views that would be clogged with outside distractions such as buildings or construction.

The Brenton Arboretum also plans to develop a new “Meditation Trail” through its existing conifer and crabapple orchards. The path will be accessible to all and is specifically dedicated to encouraging self-reflection and meditation.
