Recognizing Our Neighborhood Trees

The East Passyunk Crossing Arboretum is a Level I Accredited Arboretum with ArbNet, an interactive, collaborative, international community of arboreta.

The ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation Program is the only global initiative to officially recognize arboreta based on a set of professional standards.

See below for the collection of trees that are part of the Arboretum. The collection is provided in map and list form.

We partner with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) to hold two volunteer-based street tree plantings per year, one in April and one in November. Many of the trees in the Arboretum have been planted as part of this program. Learn more about our tree plantings here.

If you’re interested in getting involved with the Arboretum, email us at treetenders@epcrossing.org.
