Landis Arboretum
Esperance, New York


The 548-acre arboretum was established in 1951. About 40 acres are developed, the rest is maintained as a natural area, traversed by 8 miles of trails. Major collections include
historic lilacs, cold-hardy rhododendrons and crabapples. Landis is also holder of a North American Plant Collections Consortium collection of oaks.
An interesting collection is “Tough Trees for Tough Sites”, a collection of trees selected for their ability to thrive in urban environments of the northeastern United States. The collection is based on the book
Urban Trees: Site Assessment Selection for Stress Tolerance Planting, by Dr. Nina Bassuk.
