The university park

The university park is probably the oldest arboretum in Norway. Some of the trees date back to the founding years of the UMB. The park covers about 60 hectares (150 acres) and contains some 1400 different varieties of plants.

A second arboretum, Norskogarboretet, was established in 1920 and covers roughly 50 hectares. This contains some 70 species of forest trees planted in stands.

In addition to functioning as parks and recreational areas, the arboreta are used for teaching and research at UMB.
