The Arboretum At Flagstaff Reviews & Ratings
My friends and I visited this place when we were up here. Unfortunately, it wasn't spring so not much was in bloom. However, when it is, we will be stopping by again to see how beautiful it is going to look! Regardless, we had a good time walking around this place. It's so quiet and beautiful.
I was disappointed - there just isn't much there. It's a small arboretum that just didn't have many plants, signs, or much of anything else. At least the staff is friendly. One curious aspect of my visit was the many small propeller-driven planes that flew directly overhead at low altitude. I wonder if the arboretum is more interesting from the air?
I was sadly disappointed. The Butterfly House had one butterfly, but since it was not supervised a bird had gotten into the area. The Horticulture Center had barely any plants. The Research Greenhouse had zero plants. Additionally, I understand that the typical rains for the season have not come, but there should be some sort of irrigation system that keeps the plants alive. A lot of plants were too dry so they were wilted or dead. Finally, the pond was covered in a disgusting algae. A little more upkeep would help to make the grounds more enjoyable.
It was hot and dry but it was still beautiful and smelled good. I'm going to plan my next trip after a rain. Monsoon rains haven't come this year. The whole state is dry.
Pleasant walk in the forest. Heavily reliant on volunteers would benefit from additional knowledge of local plant species.
We had the joy of being there in Aug. and there was a tree we came across a "white Wood Pine" the needle had the fragrance of oranges, Where can I find a young tree? It is not like our Eastern white pine. GregAnswer Report Abuse
