Fullerton Arboretum is a Level IV ArbNet accredited arboretum and one key component to our accreditation is our contribution to research and conservation projects. Our collection features plants from around the world and is made globally accessible through Botanic Gardens Conservation International. We welcome the use of our collection in a wide variety of collaborative research and conservation projects.
