Arboretum
JFS Jr. ArboretumThe J. Frank Schmidt Jr. Arboretum is home to more than 800 species and cultivars of deciduous trees and shrubs, including numerous recent introductions. This special place is available for customer use and enjoyment. Landscape architects, urban foresters, horticulturists, and other tree professionals are also invited to visit the collection.

Established in 1984 with additions made each year, many of the older trees have grown to more than 40 feet in height and have attained mature form. Trees are grouped by genus, with larger genera grouped by species. Conifers, flowering shrubs, perennials and other garden plants complement the deciduous tree collection. Unique foliage, fruit, flowers, shape and character create a show that changes daily throughout the year.

Winter-blooming Witch Hazels set the stage in January for a show of color that lasts all year. Crabapple blooms are especially nice in mid-April, after the flowering plums, magnolias and cherries have given up center stage. Colors change daily as the season progresses, as tender leaves unfold and mature to summer splendor and then explode into a kaleidoscopic array of autumn hues. Late summer is a great time to compare foliage colors and the effect of heat stress on the various cultivars. Fall color is at its peak during the third and fourth week of October. Crabapples put on an excellent show of fruit from October to December. Winter reveals the beautiful structure unique to each variety, and highlights the attractive winter bark characteristics of many species.

Regardless of the season, the J. Frank Schmidt Jr. arboretum is a wonderful place to experience the beauty and pleasure of trees. To visit, please contact our office for an appointment.
