The Planning Services division of FPM maintains the Campus Landscape Maps and a Campus Plant Inventory of the plantings on Iowa State University's campus. The maps and inventory are provided here for those interested in the plant collections on campus.

Campus Landscape Map Key

The Campus Landscape Map Key divides the campus into sixty six smaller map sections. Each map section records the species, location, and approximate canopy size of the trees and shrubs in that portion of campus. Individual map sections can be opened by clicking on a map number on the Map Key. The Campus Plant Inventory spreadsheet can also be opened from the Map Key by clicking inside the marked area.

Campus Plant Inventory

The Campus Plant Inventory spreadsheet catalogues, by map section, the quantity of each plant species growing on campus. The Inventory is divided into tabs for Canopy-Understory, Evergreen Trees, Ornamental Trees, Shrubs, and Perennials. Individual map section drawings can be opened by clicking on the appropriate map number in the column headings. Hovering over the column heading prior to clicking on it will display a building name or campus area located in that map section.

We strive to produce complete and accurate maps; however some plants' labels may be incorrect or incomplete. At the present time, drawings and inventory information for sections 53 (Southwest Athletic Complex) and 59 (Reiman Gardens) are not available. Please help us improve the accuracy of our maps if you know of misidentified or mislabeled plants. Corrections can be marked on a copy of the appropriate map and emailed to
