Thanks to its attractive biologically diverse collection of trees, shrubs and plants, the campus was designated an arboretum.

UGA Arboretum Walking Tour of TreesThe UGA campus is one of the most beautiful in the United States. Stately, noble trees provide human scale, a sense of place, cooling shade, and tranquility to students, faculty, staff and visitors. To walk this hallowed campus is to sense the pride in its heritage and hope for the future.

The designation of the campus as an arboretum not only insures sustained, energetic tree planting and maintenance, but also presents opportunities for studying trees. This “Tree Walk” is the first project of the University of Georgia Campus Arboretum initiative.

North Campus Walk (0.5 mile & disability accessible) starts at the Arch on Broad Street. The walk proceeds south to the Main Library then back north to the Arch. The President’s Club Garden is located near tree #32.

Central Campus Walk
(1.7 miles) starts at Memorial Hall just north of Sanford Stadium. The walk winds in-between Tate Center and the University of Georgia Bookstore, across the parking lot, up to a wooded area off Lumpkin Street, around the Physics building, down to Sanford Drive, and back to Memorial Hall.

Visit website for maps and more info.

Each map features brief descriptions about every tree. The place of origin is usually stated following the description. When Georgia is listed as origin, this refers to the fact that the plant grows naturally somewhere in the state. Botanical and common name indexes are located at the back of the brochure.
