The Arboretum's goal for its fir collection is to display a diversity of fir species and to evaluate them for their adaptability to the Mid-Atlantic region. This collection serves as a teaching, display, and research resource for the public and professional visitors.

Rosa

Roses have been cultivated at the Montreal Botanical Garden since the 1930s. The Rose Garden was officially inaugurated in 1976. The collection has grown since then to become one of the most significant collections of its kind in North America, particularly in its species diversity. Of the 150-200 species taxonomists identify in the genus, 115 species are included in this collection. All but two of these species successfully overwinter at this USDA zone 4 site with no additional protection other than natural snow cover.

Pinus

The Pinus and ornamental grass collections at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum became part of the Plant Collections Network (formerly North American Plant Collections Consortium, NAPCC) in January 2012. Its Pinus Collection is comprised of 60 taxa represented by 200 individual trees.  The collection is dominated by native red pine (P. resinosa) and white pine (P. strobus), but also includes many other cold-hardy species, providing a demonstration of climate-appropriate pines.
