Welcome to the Arboretum Collection Page

UC Davis Campus Grown is proud to announce the launch of its Arboretum Collection—a line that currently includes pins and pendant necklaces featuring the leaf of an Arboretum-grown valley oak (Quercus lobata) tree.

Since the UC Davis Arboretum was founded over 75 years ago, the majestic, twisted limbs of the valley oak tree have served as the backbone of this treasured campus landscape. Today the tree and its iconic leaf serves as an emblem for the Arboretum whose landscape includes a total of 128 native valley oaks as well as one of the largest, most diverse oak collections in the United States.

Gift this unique Arboretum keepsake to someone you know will appreciate its beauty and connection to our campus's prized landscape or buy one for yourself! Proceeds from your purchase help support the Friends of the UC Davis Arboretum whose donations sustain the Arboretum’s innovative education programs and provide for the care, maintenance and growth of the inspiring plant collections.
