The Arboretum is open 9am to 5pm.
We welcome you to the Arboretum!
The garden reopened December 26, a week earlier than scheduled. We thank you all for your support and patience during the Arboretum's closure since the December 1st windstorm. Arboretum staff members, above from left, David Okihara, Joe Valenzuela, Theresa Richau, Glenn Klevdal, Angela Carranza, Irma Reddig and Rafael Cano Jr., all look forward to seeing visitors again in the garden.
Shortly after the windstorm, more than 150 workers from multiple public agencies worked with the entire Arboretum staff on the massive cleanup. We are also enormously grateful to our volunteers. Our assessment of damage showed 235 trees a total loss and over 700 requiring extensive restoration pruning. As you may have seen or heard, the LA Times, KPCC, KNBC, KCBS and others have reported the Arboretum story.
