The Landis Arboretum is a public garden on 548 acres and six miles of hiking trails overlooking the Schoharie Valley near Esperance, NY. Forty acres are developed with plantings of trees, shrubs, and herbaceous perennials from around the world. The remainder of the property consists of natural areas, woodlands, and open fields reminiscent of the former farm on the site. Trails and trail maps help guide people through the formal collections and natural areas. These maps can be found in the kiosk in the main parking lot. The grounds are open daily from dawn until dusk. Suggested donation of $5.00 The office is open Monday through Thursday, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Unlike many arboreta having the financial endowment large enough to support their operations, Landis was developed, with limited assistance from a small endowment, on a farm in rural Schoharie County. With the devotion and hard work of many volunteers, the Arboretum has become a significant educational and cultural asset in the surrounding region.
Landis is one of the four more significant arboreta in New York. The others are the Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay and Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Great River (both on Long Island) and the Cornell Plantations in Ithaca, which has an extensive scientific orientation.. Approximately 6,000 people visit the Landis Arboretum each year.
