Origin of arbor

  • Middle English herber from Old French erbier garden from erbe herb herb

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • French arbre from Latin arbor tree

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • Middle English arbour, from Old French erbier (“field, meadow, kitchen garden”), from erbe (“grass, herb”), from Latin herba (“grass, herb”) (English herb). (Compare Late Latin herbarium, although erbier is possibly an independent formation.) The phonetic change to ar- was influenced by Latin arbor (“tree”).
