Pine Hollow Arboretum tours on YouTube
Enjoy nature in the great indoors by taking YouTube tours of the Pine Hollow Arboretum in Slingerlands, located five miles from downtown Albany.
Founder John Abbuhl, M.D., leads the video tours sharing the history of the catalogued collection which includes more than 3,300 woody plants, trees and shrubs amid 12 ponds and a natural succession forest of Eastern white pine which grew on the land after farming ceased. The grounds, featuring natural walking trails and bridges, are open year-round, dawn to dusk.
Pine Hollow Arboretum is a 25-acre, member-supported, not-for-profit arboretum and nature preserve, begun in 1966 when Abbuhl started to landscape his property. In 2007, the arboretum became a non-profit corporation, in 2012 became permanently certified by the New York State Education Department, and in 2013 was awarded Level I accreditation by the ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation Program and The Morton Arboretum.
Entrance, parking and visitors’ center are at 16 Maple Ave., off Route 85, in Slingerlands. A self-guided tour map of 30 significant trees is available online at http://www.
