UM Creates New Interpretive Space for State Arboretum

 MISSOULA – The University of Montana has dedicated a special space on campus surrounded by trees to inform visitors about the state’s arboretum – which lives at UM.

Few visitors to campus realize that UM doubles as the State of Montana Arboretum, a “living museum” of over 2,200 trees and 100 distinct North American tree species.

Last year the Arboretum Committee took steps to invite visitors in and inform them about this valuable forest. With extensive design input and the support of generous donors, a central interpretive site for the arboretum, dubbed “The Root,” was hardscaped last spring between Main Hall and the University Center.

Now, six colorful signs brimming with tree-focused information await fabrication and installation as soon as funds are found.

For more information or to help complete “The Root” interpretive site, visit the arboretum website.
