Welcome to Pohatcong Native Arboretum


Pohatcong Native Arboretum, Native Tree Museum of New Jersey, has an exhibition of 150 species of native trees, shrubs, and vines. The plants are identified by plaques with common, family, genus, and species names. Between 2010 and 2015 our plant collection was tripled.

Pohatcong Native Arboretum is a Native American inspired sanctuary that honors our "Local Roots" both plants and people.

The public arboretum features native plants organized by plant families on beds of decorative stones, Native American elements, sculpture gardens, wetland trails, and a log cabin with an art gallery

The arboretum is located in Pohatcong Creek Natural Area, Washington Township, Warren County.
