Bartlett Arboretum -private 300 acre arboretum - Charlotte, NC

The entire collection now comprises approximately 26 acres and still has more room to grow. In total, there are 4,451 accessioned plants that make up the conifer collection, representing 7 families, 50 genera, and an extraordinary 324 different species.

Considering there are only 8 families and around 615 conifer species worldwide, we are well on our way to assembling one of the largest and most comprehensive conifer collections in the world!
