Description
The Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum is a dynamic urban collection of cultivated tree and woody plant species, along with native grasses and wildflowers that showcases sustainable landscape management and the restoration of urban ecosystems. It is at once an urban forest, an ecological connector, a corridor for education and scientific research, and a collection of public spaces. The Arboretum’s location along a historic railway presents a unique opportunity to educate about utilizing plants to restore depleted soils and reconnect fragmented communities.

Additionally, over 250,000 non-accessioned live plants have been planted within the Arboretum since 2013, including native grasses and wildflowers.The significant botanical collections of the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum currently include: Ginkgo, Magnolia, Pinus, Quercus, Sassafras, Taxodium, and Viburnum.
