Cornell Plantations - F.R. Newman Arboretum

1 Plantations Road
Ithaca, NY 14850

607-255-2400

The F.R. Newman Arboretum is a place for the scientific study and public exhibition of a diversity of trees and shrubs. These plantings, all hardy to our area, help foster Plantations’ scientific, educational, and plant appreciation efforts. Here, visitors can learn about and enjoy native species, as well as species imported from similar climate zones around the world.

The arboretum’s collections—including nut trees, crabapples, oaks, maples, shrubs, and urban trees—comprise a 150-acre pastoral setting. Specialty gardens in the arboretum include the Zucker Shrub Collection and the Treman Woodland Walk. The rolling hills and valleys, or “bowls,” were carved out by Fall Creek following the retreat of the last glaciers over 10,000 years ago. The arboretum’s overlooks and benches provide visitors with panoramic views.
