Gardens & Arboreta

Dendrological collections of interest, with a focus on oak collections

The Botanical Garden of Porto is located on the west side of the city of Porto, on a plateau overlooking the mouth of the Douro River and the Atlantic Ocean. Currently covering 4 hectares, it is part of the grounds of the University of Porto campus and is situated on what was once Quinta do Campo Alegre, a historic estate formerly on the outskirts of Porto. 

An International Accreditation Program for Arboreta

ArbNet is an interactive community of arboreta, sponsored and coordinated by The Morton Arboretum in cooperation with the American Public Gardens Association and Botanic Gardens Conservation International. Its Arboretum Accreditation Program recognizes arboreta at various levels of development and capacity, based on an arboretum’s collections and curation, education and public programming, scientific research and conservation initiatives, governance, and staff or volunteer support.
