Arboretum Appenninicum belongs to the University of Camerino and is located in Tuseggia, a small town some 2 miles from Camerino. It was established 1990 and covers 25 acres on a hilly area, at an altitude of around 1.640 ft.
That place still retains the typical features of an agricultural area, with the steepest stretches full of natural vegetation, such as broom shrubs.
The most common species is the downy oak (Quercus pubescens) but there are many other trees, including Fraxinus excelsior, Acer pseudoplatanus, Acer platanoides, Acer campestre, Tilia platyphyllos, Abies alba, Pinus mugo, Cryptomeria japonica, Pittosporum tobira, and Pinus cembra sybirica.

The arboretum is delimited by a stream flanked by white willows (Salix alba), elms and poplars; on the northern slope of the hill, in the higher part, there are oaks, hornbeams, chestnuts, poplars, and hazelnuts. The Arboretum is crossed by an ancient road bordered by two hedges of hawthorns, field maples, privets and blackthorns, and by rows of oaks.
