The Davis Arboretum was begun as a collection of native trees of the Southeastern United States. Over the years this collection has been expanded, not only increasing the number of tree species, but also native shrubs and herbaceous plants. The addition of more diversity in native herbaceous material is a current focus, since there are thousands of species of wildflowers and grasses. The Arboretum has also established areas of native communities or habitats that represent various ecosystems in Alabama. As the plantings and diversity have increased, so has the wildlife that has taken up residence here and the diversity continues to expand.
