Arboretum Kalmthout has been awarded a Level III Accreditation by the ArbNet Accreditation Program in the Morton Register of Arboretum.

The ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation Program is sponsored and coordinated by The Morton Arboretum in cooperation with American Public Gardens Association and Botanic Gardens Conservation International. This international initiative offers four levels of accreditation, recognizing arboreta of various degrees of development, capacity and professionalism. Accreditation is based on self-assessment and documentation of an arboretum’s level of achievement of accreditation standards. Standards include planning, governance, labeling of species, staff or volunteer support, public access and programming and tree science, planting and conservation. 

Gedeputeerde van de provincie Antwerpen Inga Verhaert houdt samen met conservator-directeur Abraham Rammeloo het ArbNet certificaat vast, in de tuin van Arboretum Kalmthout. Op de achtergrond bloeien witte herfstanemonen uitbundig in de borders.

It’s a fantastic feeling to belong to the extraordinary group of accredited arboreta that will strengthen our international links and enhance collaboration and the sharing of knowledge,” said Abraham Rammeloo, curator and director of Arboretum Kalmthout. “To the province of Antwerp, this accreditation demonstrates that the decision to safeguard this unique property and tree collection was right.”
