Tree ID for Beginners (Online)
Taught by Lisa Nett
Lisa hails from the tree filled state of Wisconsin. She studied forestry at UW-Madison, and the art of firewood stacking on the family dairy farm. She rolls through the city streets on a trusty Schwinn while sneaking peeks at the passing trees. Check out Lisa's tree-focused Tumblr, The Tree Seen, or follow her on Twitter, @lisa_nett.
Learn to identify trees by the details: bark, buds, leaves and tree form. Class will start with an overview of identification terminology and how to identify some common trees (with a focus on the Eastern US) with an overview of what to look for now and in the seasons to come.
