As a genuine tree museum, the Chèvreloup Arboretum brings together more than 2,500 species and varieties of trees from the temperate and cold regions of the northern hemisphere: Himalayas, Caucasus, China, Japan, North America, Europe…

20 minutes from Paris, not far from the château de Versailles, take the time to admire the trees in an exceptional environment. Here they are left in their natural habitat and interventions are limited to what is strictly necessary.

Because of its richness and diversity, Chèvreloup is the ideal place to understand what biodiversity is in its floristic component and, more generally, nature in its complexity.
