Secrest Arboretum
Secrest Arboretum (115 acres) is an arboretum located on the campus of the Ohio
Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC), in Wooster, Ohio. It  is the
Ohio State University's primary research arboretum, and contains over 2,000 native
and introduced species and cultivars of trees, shrubs, and other plants. It was
established in 1909 when Edmund Secrest set out the first planting for a proposed
Forest Arboretum.

The arboretum contains the following Ohio champion trees: Giant Dogwood (Cornus
controversa), Nikko Fir (Abies homolepis), Nordmann Fir (Abies nordmaniana), and
Japanese Larch (Larix leptolepsis). The arboretum also boasts a collection of Dawn
Redwood trees, a fast-growing and deciduous conifer and the only remaining species
of Metasequoia, and the Garden of Roses of Legend and Romance, which features
about 500 varieties of roses.
