» Arboretum

adronia Cemetery and Arboretum is one of the oldest and most beautiful in the Santa Clara county. The cemetery grounds continue to grow as interesting trees and areas are planted providing a dignified landscape. Many trees are over 100 years old and stand guard over the final resting place of Saratogans. Some of the 1100 veterans buried date back to the Civil War. A charming variety of trees including some indigenous to California provide spectacular fall and spring color. The combination of stately trees with weathered markers provide an interesting walk.

About the Arboretum

The arboretum was dedicated on May 1, 2017 by Saratoga Mayor Emily Lo as part of the annual city-sponsored Arbor Day celebration. Currently, the arboretum has 294 trees from 91 different species representing trees from around the world as well as those indigenous to California. Arbnet Arboretum Accreditation Program and Morton Arboretum awarded Madronia cemetery with a Level I arboretum accreditation. The trees are tagged with scientific and common names. The QR (Quick Response) code can be scanned by most smart phones for finding out more information about the trees. Plans are in progress to provide a paper walking tour for your convenience.

People interested in memorializing a loved one can donate a tree. For more information, contact the Madronia office: (408) 867-3717. We invite you to explore the cemetery and arboretum each season as the trees showcase their beauty.
