The Dawes Arboretum was established in 1929 by Beman Dawes and his wife Bertie. The idea for an arboretum came to Beman during his youth in Marietta, Ohio, where his father’s lumber business supported the family. Today, The Arboretum prides itself on increasing plant diversity available to the gardening public by identifying and introducing plants showing beneficial characteristics and no invasive qualities in addition to our conservation efforts.
