Plantsmap.com is excited to invite ArbNet Accredited Arboreta to connect with the ArbNet profile on Plants Map.
The ArbNet Accreditation Program was started by The Morton Arboretum as a way to establish and share a widely recognized set of industry standards and guidelines to unify the arboretum community. In April 2011, ArbNet.org was launched to support the common purposes and interests of tree-focused public gardens and four levels of accreditation were established.
Soon after we launched Plantsmap.com, it came to our attention that several of our organization profiles began using our My Plants Map tools and interactive tags and signs to help gain their ArbNet accreditation status.
Read two of our featured profile journals about ArbNet Accredited Arboreta: Historic Woodlawn Cemetery & Arboretum embodies the rural cemetery tradition; Graceland Cemetery Introduces a Plants Map Interactive Arboretum Tour.
In April 2017, ArbNet established a profile on Plants Map to connect together those landscapes using Plantsmap.com and to raise awareness of their program and resources. We encourage more landscapes that are tree-focused to learn about ArbNet and consider using our My Plants Map tools to gain accreditation status.
