An arboretum was an area found on several starship types where various plants were grown and studied scientifically. The arboretum also doubled as a recreational area.

The Federation Starfleet Excelsior-class, Galaxy-class, and Quasar-class starships had arboretums aboard. (Star Trek: The Next Generation; Star Trek: The Prospect Chronicles; Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions)

Aboard the Excelsior-class USS Cantabrian (NCC-24705), 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.
