The property is a complex mosaic of soil types and moisture regimes that are reflected in the diverse composition of the natural forest stands. It comprises small areas of the maple-hickory associations, remnants of the forest ecosystems that used to prevail in the St. Lawrence River Valley. The Arboretum has been open to the public since the early 50s. As part of the Senneville Migratory Bird Sanctuary, it has become a very popular sight for bird watching. The prime location of the Arboretum, on the outskirts of a large urban centre, sets it as an outstanding asset in the areas of popular ecological education and nature-based recreation, but also adds to the challenge of its protection and management.
