About the event

A workshop to identify common native broadleaved deciduous and if found) exotic tree in winter whilst on a nature reserve. We will use key characters such as bud colour and shape, bark types and overall growth form to separate oak from field maple, sycamore from ash, hazel from sallow and apple from elm.

The shape and size of trees and their growth rates are varied as a result of their particular family history and the environmental conditions they have adapted to. The types of trees, their characteristics and their associations are all key components of many of our local habitats, so knowing which trees are which will help you to better understand your local nature reserve.
