Welcome to the Missouri Arboretum

Designated by the Missouri State Legislature as the official Missouri Arboretum in 1993, the Northwest Missouri State University campus is a place where people can learn about and celebrate trees. The campus is home to more than 1,800 trees and more than 150 species grown and matured during the University's long history of tree preservation. In 2018, the ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation Program and the Morton Arboretum awarded the Missouri Arboretum at Northwest a Level II accreditation.

As you walk the campus, you will notice the pride we take in our trees, which are routinely pruned and shaped to create the welcoming educational outdoor environment that Northwest embraces.
