About Us

Nestled in the Southern Appalachian Mountains just south of Asheville, The North Carolina Arboretum offers acres of cultivated gardens and groomed trails featuring some of the most beautiful, botanically-diverse plants in the region. For more than 30 years, The North Carolina Arboretum has cultivated connections between people and plants.

The North Carolina Arboretum’s mission is to advance our state’s future by creatively connecting people, plants and places through education, design and economic development.

The vision of The North Carolina Arboretum is to redefine the Arboretum concept as central to education and place-based economic development.

The values upheld by the Arboretum are insight in knowledge about the plant world, authenticity to plan and work thoughtfully and carefully with respect for the regional landscape and culture and responsibility to develop, communicate, interpret and support the importance of and the teaching about the importance of plants to our world.
