Donald E. Davis Arboretum


The Donald E. Davis Arboretum is located in Auborn, Alabama on the campus of Auborn University.  It covers 14 acres and features trees, shrubs and wildflowers of the southeastern United States.  The scenery is quite lovely, as winding paths take visitors over streams, through wooded areas dotted with native flowers.

The arboretum is open from dawn to dusk.  Admission is free.

  3. I think it's a forest really isn't it? It looks like a wonderful place to be in the spring (or autumn).

    1. Yes. Arboretums generally are forest-like with wild flowers. They're a little different from formal gardens.
