Our mission at the UH Mānoa landscaping department is to develop the campus grounds into a botanical garden which students and faculty can use as a resource for teaching and learning. Because of our geographical location and a history rich in botanical knowledge, the landscape of this University is unlike no other in the world. Our priceless collection includes over 600 kinds of plants and trees, Historic stands of trees planted by botanist Dr. Joseph Rock himself, endangered native specimens, and one of the largest (if not the largest) Baobab trees in the United States.
