   Universidad Francisco Marroquín / Arboretum

Awakening and cultivating the love for nature and conservation of plants and animals in the Campus.

The land where the University Francisco Marroquin stands, is a remnant of the Montano Forest , pine and Encino trees, that used to cover Guatemala’s surface. The beautiful gardens that the University has have been carefully designed to integrate native and exotic species that have been admired by students and visitors.

Since the beginning preservation of this forest was a priority to the point where the arquitectural design of the buildings was done so the trees were kept as intact as possible.

We decided to take our effort much further and this is why the Arboretum was created so now we are preserving and studying many species
