1 | 2



I. Purpose and Objective


The University of Maryland – College Park has over 11,000 plants currently recorded in its GIS based inventory. These plants are the foundation of the campus landscape. The purpose of the Campus Tree Management Plan of 2012 is to support the Mission Statement of the Arboretum and Botanical Garden and sustain a healthy, attractive and safe environment for the people and plants that are present on the campus at any given time.


Mission Statement:


"The University of Maryland campus is an Arboretum and Botanical Garden that strives to be an instrument of horticultural distinction, landscape design and interpretation and place-making reflecting the university’s education, research and service missions. The Arboretum and Botanical Garden incorporates the diverse heritage landscapes of the campus from its beginnings as an agricultural college founded in 1856 to its current urban setting befitting a distinguished research university. Through exemplary practices of environmental stewardship, horticulture and urban forestry, the Arboretum and Botanical Garden will enhance the campus’ aesthetic and promote awareness of conservation and preservation of our natural environment for the enrichment of the university community, the citizens of Maryland and our visitors."
