Landscape Horticulture

Since 1891, the trees on the UA campus grounds have served as a proving ground and living laboratory in the study of desert horticulture. From experience, we know that healthy, mature trees provide greatest benefits and we have gained insights into tree selection and landscape management practices that optimize tree health and longevity. For almost 125 years, our goal has been to test trees suitable for arid cities and to provide science-based recommendations guiding landscape management practices. To promote sustainable landscapes, we have created a tour to allow us to share our findings with the community. 

We offer many other opportunities for you to participate in this tour: request a special time for a group tour, check out a self-guided tour booklet from 101 Herring Hall, print a copy of the self-guided tour (pdf below) or try the mobile tour.
