Arbutus ARME

the ARME

Arbutus menziesii is the binomial name for Pacific madrone. A.R.M.E., like Army, is the shorthand abbreviation Arbutus menziesii.

We are an all-inclusive group, so feel free to call the tree by the variety of common names out there in the world. It can change based on your geographic location. Arbutus is the name often used north of the border in Canada. Madrone, madrona, madroño are all good too.

Education | Conservation | Connection

Like any other army, we are a force. More specifically, we are more of a botanical and community-powered collective of people focused on facilitating efforts at Pacific madrone research, conservation, restoration and education.
