Extraordinary Tree I.D.

Saturday, April 6, 2019, 10am to 1:30pm

with Bob Leverett

How can you identify tree species by crown form, bark appearance, and habitat? How do tree form and bark texture change with age? How do topography, location, weather, and soil conditions affect the appearance of trees? Join Bob Leverett to find the answers to these and many other questions. In addition to identifying tree species in our region, you will learn about the ecology of each species, its historical uses, and where champion specimens may grow. Bob will also share how the Eastern Native Tree Society explores and documents the locations and dimensions of the most charismatic of the species that we’ll see. Look Park offers easy access for viewing a surprising array of tree species within its 150 acres, with many large, old, and charasmatic trees. A walk with Bob Leverett is not a typical tree i.d. program!

Location: Look Park, in the village of Florence, Northampton, Massachusetts

Activity Level: Light, mostly on relatively flat terrain.

Fee: $40/person (note: Look Park charges a vehicle entrance fee of $9 in-season).
