Abstract

The small dendrological garden in Glinna (about 6 ha) near Szczecin (northwest Poland) is one of the 16 scientific places in Poland, which is well-known for growing a lot of unique trees. The local mild microclimate in combination with the Atlantic climate of West Pomerania produce favourable conditions for growing many varieties of trees and shrubs which undergo freezing in central and eastern Poland. The garden's collection amounts up to 632 taxons of trees and shrubs, representatives of 199 genera. What is valuable in the collection of the arboretum is that the cultural varieties among the gymnospermous plants make only 25%, whereas among the angiospermous plants - 10%. The mammoth tree remains the garden's symbol and its speciality consists in species of Chinese origin (180 taxons) and maples (68 taxons).
