The Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens is a 91-acre nature preserve located in North Stamford, Connecticut. Open year-round to visitors and students of natural history and horticulture, the property was once the home of noted tree expert, Dr. Francis Bartlett. The Bartlett Arboretum is a unique arboretum in that it contains thousands of plants, including several ‘champion’ trees – the largest of their species in the area. It also houses a large permanent collection of plants from around the world in its greenhouse and gardens. The pond, swamp and stream provide a positive environment for sustaining abundant wildlife. All Arboretum programs focus on the interrelationship of people, their gardens and landscapes, and the natural world around them.
