Trees are essential to life on Earth. Not only do they absorb pollutants and carbon dioxide, they also improve water (arrow 2), soil, and ecological conditions, while producing the oxygen we need to survive. Trees are also valuable resources for survival, such as for shelther building (arrow 1), fire making (arrow 3), and producing fruit (arrow 4). Trees are nature's gift to us.
In this class, you will learn the basics of tree identification; their structure, bark, twigs, and buds. You'll be guided through the woods and learn about their parts, uses and functions. The most common native species in the area will be reviewed and discussed. Identification of a tree can be hard if you only look at the leaf, but this class will also cover leaves, along with tips that tree identification books may miss. Walk through the forest with us and be introduced to the basics of this amazing resource.
