Welcome to the Friends Website

Building Community Through Horticulture
Engage, Enrich, Educate

Through their continuing commitment and volunteer efforts, The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum foster and develop public awareness, knowledge and enjoyment of horticulture and the natural world, and of course, help to preserve and maintain the beauty of this most valued community and regional resource, The Frelinghuysen Arboretum.

Be sure to view our News and Resources links which are updated regularly as are our photographs (see the menu at the top of every page).

Go really green and sign up for the electronic version of the Arboretum Leaves to be delivered to your email inbox. Just follow the instructions found in your paper Arboretum Leaves.

The Post Office Lost Our Leaves

The US Post Office lost our entire mailing of the Spring 2015 Arboretum Leaves! They say they are looking for them, but in the meantime, download a pdf of the Spring 2015 issue by clicking here.

How to Keep Up With the Arboretum


We hate to see you miss a program you have signed up for, but we know things do happen.

Check out our Cancellation Policy.

If you are new to the Frelinghuysen Arboretum, keeping up with all the activities may seem daunting. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Browse our website regularly. We work hard at updating it regularly.
  • Look especially at two sections that change regularly: our Events Page and our News Page. The first provides a detailed listing of programs scheduled for the next few months, including facilities for scheduling and purchasing on-line. The second contains brief news items about what is going on at the Arboretum.
  • Become a member -- one of the many benefits is a regular newsletter, Arboretum Leaves available either in paper or pdf. See below for link.
  • Sign up for our regular email newsletter.
