An arboretum is a place where trees are cultivated for conservation, scientific and educational study, display and preservation. The vision of the ACT Government in establishing the National Arboretum Canberra was for it to become one of the great arboreta in the world; to provide a place of outstanding beauty of international standard and a destination and recreational resource for the local community and visitors to Canberra. The National Arboretum Canberra features 100 forests of Australian natives and various rare and endangered trees from Australia and around the world. The project to develop the National Arboretum was a complex and highly accelerated program that required careful planning and close management of the performance of many contractors and consultants.
