Welcome to the new Pleasant Hills Arboretum web site, developed in collaboration with the Borough of Pleasant Hills and Chuck Maiden of Data Blue prints, LLC. We, the members of the Pleasant Hills Arboretum Board or Trustees are excited to bring to you this educational and informative site. The goals of this site are in keeping with the early plans of the founder, Mr. A.W. Robertson, who in 1950 was interested in preserving the arboretum's sixteen acres for educational and horticultural purposes. In 1954, a team of scientists from Carnegie Museum toured the arboretum and called it a "Living Museum."
In keeping with the educational vision of our founder and the interest of presenting the arboretum to the entire world, a committee within the arboretum was formed to develop a website and create a new logo to represent the arboretum. We chose the leaves of the sassafras tree, with their unique shapes and seasonal colors, as the centerpiece of the logo.
