Do you know your ash from your alder?
If you do, you’ll know that ash trees have distinctive black buds, whilst the buds of the common alder often have a striking purple tinge.
If you’re still in the dark, you can learn the secrets of tree identification in winter with this day-long course run by our Wildscapes ecologists on 17th January. We will spend the morning in the classroom looking at winter identification features before heading out to a local park to practice identifying trees, and end the day with a fun quiz to test your knowledge.
The course is aimed at anybody with a general interest in tree identification, no previous knowledge is required.
Light refreshments are provided; please bring your own lunch and suitable outdoor clothing.
