Happy Arbor Day!

The MUSC Arboretum is more than just a few trees on campus.

The MUSC Arboretum is celebrating its 10 year anniversary. Founded in 2010, “Healing Through Nature” are words that we work by here in our day to day adventures at MUSC. It is important to plant trees today, not only for our future but for upcoming generations. Our campus here at MUSC strives to have an abundant tree canopy, while using Lowcountry native trees as well as other gems from around the world, to keep our campus plantings vibrant, youthful, inspiring and offer a shady reprieve.

Please consider donating to the MUSC Arboretum to help us celebrate not only our 10 year anniversary but the planting of “Dental Row”. The Arboretum is purchasing 10 Lowcountry native trees, Carpinus caroliniana 'Orange Crush'.
