Winter Tree Identification Certificate in Native Plants

January 27, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Linda Chafin, botanist

 

 

Trees may be most beautiful in the winter when stripped down to their basic architecture. But can we know them without their leaves? In this class, students will learn the basics of identifying trees in the winter by learning about twigs, bark, leaf scars, fruits and tree form. Students will learn to use a hand lens and a simple key for woody plants to identify species. Class time will be divided between classroom exercises and a field trip to the deciduous woods at the State Botanical Garden.

 

This class is an elective for the Certificate in Native Plants.
