to Salisbury University’s virtual Arboretum. Our campus is a
place for the scientific study and public display of various
species of woody and herbaceous plants. The school began its
collection of plants in 1985 and in the spring of 1988 was
declared a national arboretum. The arboretum has become an
integral part of the 150-acre campus and exists to provide an
attractive landscape setting, conducive to learning, that
demonstrates the diversity of the plant kingdom.
Dr. Chris Briand, SU
Professor of Biological Sciences, has
created an astounding record of the University Arboretum’s
holdings. Find everything from the types of fruit on the
various species to a biography of an artist who has created
a sculpture you will find on campus.
Take a few minutes to click through our virtual Arboretum that
will provide detailed information about both the plant life and
sculpture you will find at Salisbury University. Hopefully this
will inspire you to spend some time exploring our campus and
discover for yourself the vast beauty that awaits you.
