Virtual Lunchtime Lecture: Tree ID - Hard Mast Species

Winter tree ID can be challenging but rewarding. We're here to help! In this program we will introduce stem and leaf arrangement, as this is the first step to identifying broadleaf trees. The trees in this program will all be alternately arranged, and we will be focusing on hard mast species - mainly oak, hickory, walnut, and beech. These trees are abundant in our forest but can be tricky to ID, so you will learn some tips on how to pick them out in this program!
