Trees for Urban Landscapes

The UT Arboretum hosts many research studies on various trees suitable for urban landscapes. Visitors can follow the studies in progress and also see the results of past research projects. The best area for viewing is along the Tulip Poplar Trail which encompasses the conifer, shade tree, and dogwood studies as well as other projects. Some of these areas are pictured below.
