Only 3 More Days - The Arboretum Tomé Open House

The Arboretum Tomé is a collection of rare trees endemic to the desert Southwest. Started by the founder of Trees That Please Nursery and Soil Secrets in the 80′s, the collection includes a huge variety of Oak trees, the genus Quercus, along with Redwoods, Giant Timber Bamboo, and Maples, including a Western native sugar maple called the Bigtooth Maple, Acer grandidentatum.


You are invited to see this unique collection of native high desert trees during our annual ‘Spring Fling in the Trees’ open house. After 25 years the Arboretum is known worldwide for its collection of Oaks and the remediation of the saline sodic alkaline clay of the site that exemplifies sustainable biological management of soil using techniques that meet the benchmark of organic.


The Arboretum is a great place to spend some time under the shade of mature native trees, to study and observe, to be inspired, or to see the great variety of native landscaping trees the southwest has to offer. The Arboretum is also used as an outdoor classroom where lectures are performed. Tours are available for school field trips, students, academic professionals, and individual showings.
