Learn to identify trees after they have shed their leaves for the winter in this online class from The Morton Arboretum. Develop the skills to identify winter trees on your own using clues found in buds, fruits, leaf scars, bark, and branching patterns.
The class will kick off with a self-paced online lesson, covering basic skills and terminology. Complete it any time you wish before the scheduled field session with your instructor.
During the field session, you will visit common northern Illinois trees and practice your identification skills with the guidance of your instructor.
