In 1934 the Autonomous House of State Forests (CAPS) decided to acquire this particularly valuable dendrological collection. The first arboretum development works were carried out between 1909-1914, at the initiative of the owner at that time, Count Ludovic Ambrosie. He, as the ambassador of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the United States of America, was inspired by visiting numerous parks and arboretums in the USA and initiated the creation, on his estate in Bazoș, around a castle, of such an arboretum. After purchasing the arboretum, the Romanian state, through CAPS, entrusted it to the administration of INCEF/ICES/ICAS, currently “Marin Drăcea” National Institute for Research and Development in Forestry.
