Tidewater Arboretum

About Us:

An Arboretum is a collection of trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants grown for display, research, and educational purposes. Tidewater Arboretum is a unique oasis in the midst of an urban industrial park. The Arboretum emphasizes plant material suited to the climate of Southeastern Virginia and adjacent areas, and to smaller urban gardens and landscapes. The intent of the Tidewater Arboretum is to give residents and landscapers an appreciation of the many types of plants being propagated by Virginia growers which are available in the nursery trade.
