Specimen Tree Collection

Mt. Lebanon Municipal Arboretum’s tree collection identifies for visitors more than 25 species of trees and woody shrubs that are native or non-native to our area. The collection demonstrates how a diverse canopy enriches the ecosystem, mitigates the effect of disease, and adds visual appeal to our community

Arboretum plants are located throughout the municipality on public lands, including parks, parklets, traffic islands and street rights-of-way. The collection represents a broad selection of plants that perform well in our Western Pennsylvania climate, soils and suburban location.
