Arboretum Committee under Horticulture


The Arboretum Subcommittee of the KORA Horticulture Committee seeks to increase the value
and enjoyment derived from our collection of woody plants by residents, visitors, staff, and the
Oberlin community at large by stewarding our campus as an arboretum, with accredited status via To achieve this we pursue sound acquisition, maintenance, and record-keeping
practices to ensure a healthy, diverse woody plant ecosystem that is appropriate to our USDA
Hardiness Zone 6a reclaimed wetland microclimate, in collaboration and consultation with
Kendal Facility Services, which retains its responsibilities for planting and maintaining the
woody plants on campus.
