The Pine Hollow Arboretum is a 25-acre, member-supported, not-for-profit arboretum and nature preserve situated five miles from downtown Albany, in Slingerlands, New York. The arboretum’s cataloged collection consists of over 3,300 unique trees, shrubs and other woody plants from around the world. This living collection is aesthetically arranged in a natural setting that includes 12 ponds and a natural succession forest. These marvels are all easily accessed by a network of walking trails and bridges throughout the preserve.
The arboretum is organized by geographic areas of the world, such as China, Japan and Russia. There are also areas devoted to certain species, such as fir and magnolia. Still other areas represent specific soil requirements.
We encourage all types of exploration at the arboretum including photography, plein air artistry, meditation and overall enjoyment of nature. Please come and see what nature has to offer!
The grounds of the arboretum are open dawn to dusk, 365 days per year. A self-guided tour of our 30 Significant Trees is available online and guided tours can be arranged in advance by calling (518) 439-6472.
