Visual Archives of the Arnold Arboretum

Saturday, January 21st, 2017 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Created in the 1880s as an addition to the Arnold Arboretum’s living, library, and herbarium collections, you’ll find an amazing digital collection of visual materials that trace the changes in the Arboretum’s landscape, record the individual taxa in the living collections, and plants growing in their native habitats. Basically, if you like plants, plant history, and images of plants you’re going to love today’s site!

When you arrive I recommend reading the short introductory blurb above the navigation options. After that, you can select to visit one of the following categories: Arnold Arboretum Plant Image Database; Botanical and Cultural Images of Eastern Asia; South Central China and Tibet: Hotspot of Diversity; Ernest Wilson’s New England Trees; Cienfuegos Botanical Garden, Cuba; The Arboretum Through Time, Historical Landscape Images; The Arnold Arboretum Captured in Time: 1982 1987; and The Seed Herbarium Image Project (SHIP).

Each section is pretty awesome, but I really loved checking out three sections in particular -Botanical and Cultural Images of Eastern Asia,  Ernest Wilson’s New England Trees, The Arboretum Through Time, Historical Landscape Images – because they match my personal interests in plants and culture. I’m always interested in the history of Eastern Asia, and I like to think about the way that their horticulture changed plants around the globe.  I adore trees! Ever since I did a leaf collection for school as a kid I’ve been fascinated by trees. I still remember reveling over how different a birch tree was to a maple tree, and all the different shapes and sizes of leaves, so learning about New England Trees was a must. And finally, I love looking at historical images that have been collected to demonstrate how a place has changed over time.
