USNA Virtual Tour images The U.S. 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 to serve the public need for scientific research, education, and gardens that conserve and showcase plants to enhance the environment.

The arboretum has over 446 acres of trees, shrubs and plants and is one of the largest arboreta in the country. The gardens include a variety of exhibits from formal landscaped gardens to single-genus groupings. Arboretum staff also conduct wide-ranging basic and developmental research on trees, shrubs, turf, and floral plants.

This virtual tour of the U.S. National Arboretum grounds takes you through all of the major garden features, including: aquatic plants, the Asian Collections, the Fern Valley Native Plant Collections, the Friendship Garden, the Gotelli Dwarf and Slow-Growing Conifer Collection, the Introduction Garden, the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum, the National Capitol Columns, the National Grove of State Trees, and the National Herb Garden.
