The mission of the FSU Arboretum is to provide a growing, sustainable and safe resource for the campus and regional communities to engage in education, research, observation and contemplation while maintaining the natural setting of the mountains of Appalachia.
The Arboretum at FSU is comprised of nearly ten acres of land bounded by Midlothian Road, University Drive, and the football field. It is located on the edge of campus next to the football field and across from the Children's Center.
The Arboretum is open to the public seven days a week, dawn to dusk, free of charge.
Ethnobotanical information is available for trees in the arboretum.
Research is ongoing on the removal of Japanese knotweed in the arboretum. Trees are being planted thanks to a grant from the Chesapeake Bay Foundation
The arboretum is home to the Jefferson Salamander, Ambystoma jeffersonianum, a species of concern. For more information about rare, threatened and endangered plants and animals visit the Division of Natural Resources Natural Heritage Program.
