Abstract from DBPedia
    An arboretum (plural: arboreta) in a general sense is a botanical collection composed exclusively of trees of a variety of species. Originally mostly created as a section in a larger garden or park for specimens of mostly non-local species, many modern arboreta are in botanical gardens as living collections of woody plants and is intended at least in part for scientific study. In Latin, an arboretum is a place planted with trees, not necessarily in this specific sense, and "arboretum" as an English word is first recorded used by John Claudius Loudon in 1833 in The Gardener's Magazine, but the concept was already long-established by then. An arboretum specializing in growing conifers is known as a pinetum. Other specialist arboreta include saliceta (willows), populeta (poplar), and querceta (oaks). Related collections include a fruticetum, from the Latin frutex, meaning shrub, much more often a shrubbery, and a viticetum (from the Latin vitis, meaning vine, referring in particular to a grape vine). A palm house is a large greenhouse for palms and other tender trees.

    樹木園(じゅもくえん、英語: arboretum、複数形 arboreta)とは、狭義では、樹木を収集した園である。関連したものには、fruticetum(ラテン語の低木を意味するfrutexに由来)であり、ブドウ樹を収集したviticetumがある。今日では一般的に、樹木園は、少なくとも科学的研究の分野に向けられた木本植物を生きた状態で収集している植物園である。針葉樹に特化した樹木園は、pinetumとして知られている。他に特定の樹木に特化した樹木園として、ヤナギに特化したsalicetum、ポプラに特化したpopuletum、オークに特化したquercetumがある。
