The Denrological Garden
The Dendrological Garden is a research and experimental workplace of the Silva Tarouca Research Institute for Landscape and Ornamental Horticulture, a public research institution. It was founded for the purpose of concentrating and preserving plant collections, their documentation and study, with an emphasis on the use of individual species in horticultural and landscape creation. With its activities in the field of taxonomy, plant protection, education and enlightenment, it fulfills the mission of a classic botanical garden, which it also expands with research activities in the wider sphere of environmental creation.
The Dendrological Garden manages gene pools of non-productive plants. These can be divided into three groups – collections of ornamental plants, the gene pool of endemic trees and a collection of selected individuals of memorable and culturally important trees of the Czech Republic.
