Landis is an arboretum and public garden incorporating hundreds of acres in Schoharie and Montgomery Counties of New York State. We're close to Albany, Schenectady, and the rest of the Capital Region of New York State. Arboretum founder Fred Lape began the work of developing the Arboretum in the 1950's on Oak Nose Farm, his family homestead. With the support of a bequest from friend and colleague George Landis, Fred aimed to grow every species of woody plant from temperate regions around the world that would survive in the hills of Schoharie County. Now in its second 50 years, the Landis Arboretum is a "Garden of Trees and Shrubs" in New York's Capital region. The Landis Arboretum is a valuable cultural and scientific resource that grows in scope and community impact. Group friendly. Handicap accessible buildings, driveways, parking areas. Trails are natural terrain. Dogs must be leashed and cleaned up after, pet garbage stations on site.
