The Albany Pine Bush, otherwise known as Pine Bush, is a vast inland pine forest centrally located in the counties of Albany and Schenectady in New York’s Capital District. The large pine barren was formed millennia ago after the glacial Lake Albany drained. Once spanning over 40 square miles, the Albany Pine Bush is the only remaining portion of a pine barren that has not been developed yet and is described as being one of the finest examples of an inland pine forest or otherwise known as a barren, on the planet. The remaining sections of Albany Pine Bush consist of the Woodlawn Preserve, which spans 135 acres, and the surrounding areas in Schenectady County.
