The Northland Arboretum encompasses over 400 acres in the heart of Brainerd/Baxter, Minnesota. Our member-supported, non-profit organization was founded with the closure of the Brainerd Landfill in 1972. The Northland Arboretum is a must-see destination for visitors and residents of the Brainerd Lakes area. No matter the season, our hiking trails and Visitor Center provide an opportunity for you to learn and connect with nature.
