The purpose of the Oakwood Arboretum is to preserve and enhance an historic landscape dating to the 1850’s. Over five acres are filled with a variety of old and new trees and shrubs that require dedicated horticultural care and long-term, sustainable planning, based on an evolving historic landscape management plan. A special focus is placed on engaging children in learning about the natural environment through the arboretum.
The Newport Arboretum Living Collections Committee will be the governing body as it pertains to fulfillment of standards and authorizing the participation of Oakwood as an accredited arboretum.
