The State Arboretum of Virginia is part of Blandy Experimental Farm, a research field station for the University of Virginia. The Arboretum collection includes the largest variety of boxwood cultivars in North America and more than half the world's pine species as well as a Virginia Native Plant Trail, an herb garden, extensive collections of perennials, a native plant meadow, and more.

The collection emphasizes native trees and woody shrubs and their exotic relatives. It is the only mature arboretum on limestone soils on the east coast. A 3-mile loop drive, walking trails, and a 4-mile bridle trail offer many choices for visitors. The arboretum is open to the public dawn to dusk, 365 days a year, at no charge.
