The mission of the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML) Arboretum is to develop and maintain a living plant collection that will provide a safe, attractive, educational and sustainable urban forest that faculty, staff, students and visitors can use as a resource for teaching, learning and enjoyment. 
UMass Lowell has achieved recognition through the Arbor Day Foundation as a designated Tree Campus as well as certification as a Level II Arboretum through the ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation program. 
The UML Arboretum is a partnership with the Office of Sustainability and Facilities Management, along with the support of faculty, the student government association and our community partners.
