This brochure is a self-guided tour visiting trees of special interest on the Storrs campus of the University of Connecticut. The University of Connecticut Campus Arboretum serves as both an
aesthetic and scholarly resource for the University and campus visitors. It functions as a living laboratory and integral part of the curriculum of the University of Connecticut. Furthermore, the outstanding outdoor environment provided by the Campus Arboretum is an essential part of what
makes UConn a great place to study, work, and visit. The Arboretum Committee strives to
enhance the tree, shrub, and vine plantings on campus by recommending new plants to add to the collection and by providing input on how to best preserve and maintain existing specimens.
