The Collington Arboretum is located on the 125-acre grounds of the Collington Life Plan Community, a Kendal affiliate, in Mitchellville, Maryland. The Arboretum’s abundance of trees includes more than 100 named species and varieties. A mockernut hickory tree, immediately adjacent to Collington and visible from it, is designated as a Prince George’s County, Maryland, Champion Tree; the tree is in the County’s Regent Park.
Initially, the Collington Arboretum has 25 labeled trees on a self-guided walk. Plans include the labeling of more trees, additional walks, and guided walks. Although Collington is a gated community with limited public access, plans include the future promotion of field trips by local students and other youth groups in addition to tours for the general public.
