The University of Arizona Campus Arboretum is committed to generating and communicating knowledge that will promote improved landscape practices and enhance human connection and appreciation for trees.To this end, we publish a newsletter twice a year with current happenings, events, helpful tips for tree care and sustainable landscape management as well as poetry, literary quotes and art to inspire your senses. Please browse the archives to see what we've been up to. We hope you'll feel informed and inspired as a result.
