The Holden Arboretum is an outdoor living museum on 3,600 acres that promotes the beauty and importance of trees and other woody plants. The grounds feature over 20 miles of trails that lead you through cultivated gardens and native forests. The Arboretum also features the Murch Canopy Walk, an elevated walkway 65 feet above the forest floor, and the Kalberer Family Emergent Tower, a wooden tower that rises 120 feet above the forest floor for breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.

Travelling with your dog? The Arboretum was recently named Ohio’s Top Pet Friendly Attraction by Go Pet Friendly. Learn more about visiting the Arboretum with your canine companion on the Go Pet Friendly blog.
Scientists at Holden are working with researchers from the U.S. Forest Service identify ash trees that are better able to defend themselves against emerald ash borer, an insect which has killed more than 25 million trees in 18 states since 2002.
