Provide a beautiful and sustainable environment for Loyola University Maryland students, faculty, staff, and visitors through the preservation and aesthetic enhancement of campus trees and other woody plants.


We strive to achieve several goals with our campus arboretum:

  1. Maintain the beauty of the campus landscape while enhancing biodiversity and promoting sustainability.
  2. Preserve the stately historic campus trees and build upon the collection with native species to reinforce the character of both artificial and natural environments on campus.
  3. Maintain and develop a diverse collection of plants for teaching purposes, public education, and the enjoyment of the campus community.
