KEITH ARBORETUM & FOREST

Unique Places To Save is honored to serve as steward of two of central North Carolina's greatest botanical and ecological treasures: the Keith Arboretum and Forest.  These 210 acres of adjoining conservation land offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience: 

One of the most diverse collections of temperate woody tree and shrub species in the United States.

A state-designated Natural Heritage Area with an unusually large, mature Chestnut Oak forest culminating in the second highest point in Orange County. 

A legacy landscape that is permanently protected through conservation easements held by our partners: Orange County, Triangle Land Conservancy, and the Conservation Trust for North Carolina.

KEITH ARBORETUM

The mission of the Keith Arboretum is to create and preserve a large and diverse collection of temperate woody tree and shrub species for study and enjoyment by researchers, horticultural students, professional horticulturists, and the general public.  UP2Save is thrilled to be developing the next stage of the Arboretum as a destination for botanical education and study to understand commonalities and differences between species from around the world, with our planned Digital Tree Experience (LINK to project description) and exploring and interpreting the collection as a veritable food forest with dozens of species producing edible fruits, nuts, and medicinal plants.
