An Introduction to Tree Identification in Winter - Henfield (08/12/2019) Sunday, 8th December 2019 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Tutor: Bruce Middleton
How confident are you in identifying the trees that surround you as you walk through a woodland? This course is designed for introducing beginners to the native and naturalised trees of Sussex.
Without their leaves identifying broadleaf trees in the winter can be more of a challenge. In this course we will start indoors focusing on features such as buds, twig morphology, and bark to help us decipher which species is which.
We’ll then spend most of the session outdoors, developing our ID skills, observing the habitat and context of the broad range of species found at Woods Mill. We’ll also touch on how some species have been traditionally managed, and their uses over time.
No previous knowledge is required. The course is also suitable for those who have done the summer identification course.
