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.

In 2018, Haverford College Arboretum began a two-year strategic planning process. The Arboretum's strategic plan is a set of guidelines set by Arboretum staff, students, alumni, Haverford staff, and community members to guide the Arboretum for the next five years and help shape the future of the Arboretum.
Members of the community celebrated the changing season at the Arboretum’s Fall Festival, which included a Nature Trail night hike lit by handmade jack-o’-lanterns.
