What is the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum?

The Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum will evolve into a twenty-two mile long horticultural collection.

Neighborhoods near the Arboretum will be identifiable by the surrounding trees, and visitors will be able to develop a better appreciate for the value of trees in an urban environment.
