The Bailey Arboretum is a 42-acre (17 ha) arboretum located in Lattingtown, New York, a small village on the North Shore of Long Island.

Situated on the former estate of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Bailey, the arboretum is home to more than 600 varieties of trees and shrubs from around the world, including such rare specimens as dwarf Nikko Firs from Japan, blue Atlas Cedars from North Africa, Korean Pines and several Chinese Dawn Redwoods - a species classified by the World Conservation Union as "critically endangered" in the wild.

In addition to its collection of rare trees, the arboretum contains an extensive variety of chrysanthemums, yellow magnolias, rhododendrons, and azaleas, as well as five perennial beds with over 100 labeled varieties. The arboretum also features a sensory garden specifically designed to be accessible and enjoyable to disabled visitors.
