Haywood Community College Arboretum in Clyde, North Carolina

Haywood Community College Arboretum (83 acres) is an arboretum located across the campus of Haywood Community College.

The arboretum was laid out by Asheville landscape architect Doan Ogden for industrialist A. L. Freedlander, who donated the college's initial funding provided that the site's oak forest be preserved.

An early inventory recorded 880 trees including 22 native species, many averaging 100 years old. Since then the arboretum staff has added a further 87 species of trees, shrubs, and ground covers.

Arboretum features include a rhododendron garden (1 acre) containing 75 varieties of rhododendron, conifers, dahlia garden featuring over 250 varieties, fruit tree orchard, greenhouse, herb garden, rose garden, nature trail, and perennials.
