The Fairhill Burial Ground has been certified as a Level 1 Arboretum by ArbNet, an international arboretum accreditation and networking program. 

Our Arboretum is made up of 144 trees, including 51 different species, growing in our five acre site. We have some beautiful old deciduous trees including some species that, because of our isolation,  have survived common diseases. An example is our huge American Elm which has survived the destruction of Elms through the pervasive Dutch Elm disease. Our Arboretum marks one of the only remaining sections of green space and tree canopy in the Fairhill section of Philadelphia. The area surrounding Historic Fair Hill suffers from extreme heat island effect and our tree canopy provides a small bit of neighborhood relief.
