The Mountain Top Arboretum is a public garden in the northern Catskill Mountains of New York State. We display the range of native and exotic trees and shrubs that can successfully adapt to the rigorous climate at 2,400 feet elevation. Founded in 1977, the Arboretum now has over 1,500 accessioned trees and shrubs on display inthe Mountain Top Arboretum has 179 contiguous acres of collections, meadows, wetlands and forest connected by trails, paths, and boardwalks.  Mountain Top Arboretum offers  a natural sanctuary for everyone - visitors interested in horticulture, birders, geologists, photographers and hikers.  The  Arboretum is open every day of the year and admission is free. Come and explore!


The mission of the Mountain Top Arboretum is to provide for the Catskill region a unique and beautiful mountain top environment for a living sanctuary of native and exotic trees and shrubs. Using this sanctuary we will:

- Engage in the applied science of horticulture;
- Promote stewardship of the environment; and
- Offer a diversity of programs for the education and pleasure of the public.
