Foliage, Flowers, and Fruit! Summer Tree Identification Class @ Center For Urban Horticulture

Are you stumped by the differences between one kind of oak and another? How to distinguish one conifer from another? Want to sharpen your ability for quick tree recognition in the field? This is the class for you, whether you simply need a refresher on tree identification or want to improve your existing skills. This session will cover a similar group of trees as reviewed in the Winter Tree Identification workshop we held last March, with an emphasis of those traits most visible during the summer months.

We will begin in the classroom at the Center for Urban Horticulture to review the basics of tree identification techniques, the use of taxonomic keys, and to discuss the common landscape tree species and varieties used in the Pacific Northwest. This will be followed by an outdoor field session where you will practice tree identification techniques on a walk to the main campus of the University of Washington.

Taught by Bess Bronstein and Christina Pfeiffer
