I enjoyed that too. Here's this bit from m-w.com:
Main Entry: ar·bo·re·tum
Inflected Form(s): plural -retums or ar·bo·re·ta /-'rE-t&/
Etymology: New Latin, from Latin, plantation of trees, from arbor
: a place where trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants are cultivated for
scientific and educational purposes
I think he's referring to the source *tree*.
