Coastal Plain Research Arboretum

Coastal Plain Research Arboretum

The Coastal Plain Research Arboretum (38 acres) is an arboretum located on the grounds of the University of Georgia's Coastal Plain Experiment Station in Tifton, Georgia.

The arboretum was established in 1987, with plant development and selection starting in 1991. It consists of stream-side forest and wetland, and is dedicated to native plant species of the Georgia Coastal Plain.

The arboretum currently contains pine woods, a native azalea collection, and approximately 280 taxa of native trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants. It is active in efforts to conserve the endangered "Torreya taxifolia".
