Arboretums with Nut Trees, and Nut-related Resources
Introduction by Jerry Henkin, NNGA Librarian

Botanical gardens throughout Canada and the United States are wonderful places to visit for people of all ages. The list below contains the names, locations, and web sites of popular botanical gardens and arboretums with collections of nut trees. There, you can see living examples of nut trees - some of which are identified as named cultivars. Most web sites contain phone numbers and e-mail addresses.

Some institutions, like the Montreal Botanical Garden, have only few nut trees planted in or around the garden and tropical nut trees in a conservatory; but they offer educational programs and have historical information on nut trees in the area. I have also added to this list government sources that have accessions of nut tree germplasm, where experts study nut tree culture, including diseases and pests associated with nut trees. The government organizations and arboretums may be willing to share nuts and scionwood with you.

We have placed this list of arboretums, botanical gardens and other nut-related resources in Canada and the US in PDF format which can be easily printed and/or saved. Click HERE to access it.
