The arboretum is a botanic garden found onboard several starship classes, including the Constitution-class, Excelsior-class, and Galaxy-class. (TOS: "The Man Trap", "And the Children Shall Lead", "Is There in Truth No Beauty?"; TNG: "Data's Day")
Aboard the Cantabrian, the arboretum was located on Deck 14. Captain Noah Wrightson, an avid gardener, cordoned off a section of the arboretum for his own personal use, calling the space the Captain's arboretum. In this space, he grew dahlias and other flowers, as well as manuka, Pōhutukawa and other New Zealand natives. His private arboretum was located on Deck 14, Room 1827. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Catalyst, Part One")
Civilians were allowed to staff positions in the arboretum. Keiko O'Brien was head of the plant biology lab while she was aboard the ship. (TNG: "Night Terrors") Children such as Clara Sutter were also allowed to help with small projects in the arboretum. (TNG: "Imaginary Friend")
