Trees without leaves

While winter is one of the best times to improve your trees, it's difficult to identify trees without their leaves. Yet, the work that you do out in the cold should be directed at the trees that you want to keep. Join us for this webinar on identifying trees during the winter months. This subject is broad, has been taught as an entire semester course in college, and usually takes one day of indoor and outdoor sessions. However, University of Illinois Extension Forester Jay Hayek promises to condense the basics into this one hour webinar.  Once you understand the most basic botanical structures, as seen in winter--the twigs, bark and fruit--identification becomes much easier. If you are interested in woody plants and want to hone your identification skills, join us.  The webinar is provided for free; it will only cost you one hour of your time and might save you from making mistakes.
