Wellington’s arboretum, also known as the Tree & Shrub Identification Area, is now open to the public.
The educational area is located at Greenbriar Park at 2965 Greenbriar Blvd. and features more than 30 different varieties of native trees and shrubs.
The arboretum offers homeowners, landscapers and arborists an opportunity to view and evaluate a wide variety of trees and shrubs that are native to the area. It is a serene place where visitors can relax while learning more about plants well-suited to the soils and climate of Palm Beach County.
The living display serves as a resource to assist homeowners in selecting plants for their yard. Each species is identified by a marker that provides the common name, scientific name and the size at maturity.
