About the Mountain Top Arboretum
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.
The Arboretum is lead by its Board of Directors, whose members are elected at the Annual Meeting held in May of each year for three-year terms. The Board meets at least three times per year. It also conducts business through committees formed by the Board from time to time. There is an Executive Committee that is empowered to act between regular meetings of the Board, a Finance Committee, a Nominating Committee, a Membership Development Committee and a Horticulture Committee. Committee members can include persons who are not members of the Board.
