Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum is one of the true gems of the Greater Cincinnati region. The 733-acre garden serves as an incredibly beautiful horticultural educational facility for the Cincinnati community and for the region as a whole. Its heritage is tied to a strong, continuing tradition of horticulturists embedded in Spring Grove’s leadership.

Spring Grove's Arboretum is proud to be a Level III Accredited site, as awarded by the Morton Arboretum Register. The Morton Arboretum (http://www.arbnet.org/arboretum-accreditation.html) has established the Morton Register of Arboreta and a basic system of accreditation to recognize arboreta of various degrees of development, capacity, and professionalism. Spring Grove is only one of two historic cemeteries to achieve the enhanced Level III designation for arboretum standards.

The mission of Spring Grove's Arboretum is to collect and display woody plants to enhance the educational, outreach, and research opportunities for its visitors. The Arboretum continues to focus on plant selections and their use in managed urban landscapes throughout the Midwest. In addition to managing and expanding existing selections, another goal of the Arboretum is to establish new collections of Midwest natives and nonindigenous species, and ultimately, to develop gardens that express and promote the vital relationship that exists between plants and people.

The Arboretum is dedicated to the protection and stewardship of Spring Grove Cemetery’s heritage and to promoting environmental sustainability while increasing the beauty of the garden.
