Entering into the gardens, the conifers provide a year-round respite from the outside world. We believe you’ll find the unique shapes and colors fascinating on your every returning visit.

The Dubuque Arboretum has three collections of conifers:

  • the Walter Collection
  • the Hermsen Collection
  • the Mozena Collection


Some interesting Conifer Facts

Within these three beautiful collections, our plant count numbers almost 500. In addition, these plants:

  • represent over 12 different genus and dozens of species and cultivars; and
  • originate from around the world.

Plant sizes range from large (40- to 50-foot specimens) to plants as small as 12”. There are plants that would fit into any size garden you have.
