The mission of the Haverford College Arboretum is to steward the College's historic tree collection while fostering a connection between our 216-acre campus and those who work, visit, study, and reside here. Maintaining the health, diversity, and history of the tree collection honors William Carvill's original 1834 landscape design, while our educational programming ensures continued engagement with this unique and treasured asset.
