Our November 13, A DAY in the WOODS program Winter Tree Identification will once again be offered virtually via Zoom Webinar.
Fall is in the air, and many of the trees in Southeastern Ohio have already shed their leaves. This makes tree identification more difficult, but there are still many clues that you can use to identify trees in their leafless state.
Dave Apsley (Ohio State University Extension) and Jim Downs (Hocking College) will provide you with the information and tips to help you to differentiate among the variety of trees on your property in the coming winter months. This program will take place from 10:00 to 11:30 am, and participants in this program will:
- Learn to use bud and twig characteristics to identify trees
- Become familiar with many tree fruits like acorns and other clues that can be found on the ground
- Begin to develop an eye for bark to aid in winter tree identification
These topics will be presented during a live Zoom Webinar:
10:00 AM – Welcome and Zoom Orientation
10:05 AM – Basics of Winter Tree Identification – Twigs, buds, fruit and other characteristics
11:00 AM – How to Identify Trees Using Bark
11:20 AM Resources Available to Aid in Winter Tree Identification; Q & A session with both presenters.
