The tree-filled campus of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is now an accredited arboretum, one of 134 internationally and one of two in Hawaiʻi, joining UH’s Harold L. Lyon Arboretum. UH Mānoa received the recognition from the Morton’s Arboretum ArbNet, the world’s only arboretum accreditation program.

“We look at it as giving us an opportunity to show off our campus,” said Richard Criley, UH Mānoa emeritus professor of horticulture. “It gives us a little clout. There are not that many universities that have arboreta that are accredited by ArbNet.”
