Beyond Tree I.D.

Saturday, March 29, 2014, 10 am to 3 pm

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.
