There are many remarkable and unusual trees on the grounds of Woodland which is not only a cemetery but an arboretum. Woodland is known for its many oaks, of which there are 24 varieties of the 58 species that are native to North America. Some of the species are evergreen in southern climates.

Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum was awarded a Level II Accreditation by the ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation Program and The Morton Arboretum, for achieving particular standards of professional practices deemed important for arboreta and botanic gardens.

We are looking for tour guides to learn about our trees and our Let's Talk Trees Tour. It is one of our most popular tours at Woodland.

Description

Woodland was established in 1841 for the expressed purpose of creating a resplendent cemetery landscaped to support a rapidly growing city. Since its very beginning, Woodland has been the conservator of Dayton history and the culture of its people. With over 110,000 souls entrusted to its care, it is the final resting place of many of Dayton’s most distinguished residents including the Wright brothers, Paul Laurence Dunbar, James Cox, Erma Bombeck, and Charles Kettering.

The Romanesque Gateway, Chapel and administrative office are on the National Register of Historic Places. The Chapel has one of the finest original Tiffany windows in the country. The Arboretum, upgraded in status to a Level II Arboretum during the fall of 2017, is among the foremost green spaces in Ohio with over 200 acres adorned with 3,000 trees; including ten current or former state champions.
