Arboretum magic!

An arboretum is a tree collection - a specialized assemblage of different trees. Here I share with you the arboretums I have visited. And is it arboretums or arboreta? Both, according to the dictionaries at Oxford University Press and Cambridge University Press :)

You'll also find trees as well as many other plants in my section about botanical gardens.
