Tree Talk focuses in on Tree Identification….

I was fortunate enough to spend a considerable amount of my time week last week on my favorite subject … Tree identification (a.k.a. dendrology).  We recorded this Tree Talk segment on Thursday (7-12) , and the focus of our  “DAY in the WOODS” program at the Vinton Furnace State Forest on Friday (7-13) was tree identification.

Thanks to Duane Rigsby, Sarah Swanson and Pat Dengel for your patience and for improvising  with the camera.
