F. Carroll Sargent Arboretum at Greenlawn Cemetery

Description

The Sargent Arboretum occupies the 55-acre Greenlawn Cemetery in North Salem. In 1934-1935, workers funded by the New Deal planted many hundreds of labeled trees, shrubs, and woody vines in the cemetery, creating one of the most diverse arboreta in Massachusetts. Today, the Sargent Arboretum is home to threatened and endangered species of woody plants, and hosts an annual tree stroll. The Sargent Arboretum is supported by a collaboration between the City of Salem, Friends of Greenlawn Cemetery, and Salem State University.
