DLAMN - Tree Identification Basics - Winter

Tree Identification Basics – Winter”, for NiT and Continuing Education will be held at Lake Ouachita State Park, Saturday, February 18 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. We will meet in the Visitors Center Conference Room. Coffee and treats will be ready at 8:40ish and the class will start promptly at 9:00. After a short break for lunch, we will resume at 12:30 at for an afternoon field study. If the weather does not cooperate, the class will continue indoors.

You will need to bring a sack lunch, water, and a walking stick/hiking pole.

When we think of tree identification, we typically think of using leaf characteristics to determine the type of tree. Just about everyone made a leaf collection as a child. Identifying trees in the winter months requires the use of a different set of characteristics. Join Certified Master Naturalists John Simpson and Bill Randel in a classroom presentation on Winter Tree ID. We’ll explore the different characteristics of woody plants that enable identification in the winter months. Once we understand these characteristics, we will use the book, Trees of Arkansas, by Dr. Eric Sundell in the identification process. All DLAMN NiTs attending the Winter Tree ID events will receive a copy of Dr. Sundell’s book.

A tree does not die in the winter; nor is it resurrected in the spring.
It waits. – Hesse
