This is a great time of the year to tackle this extensive group whilst the leaves, fruit and even flowers are still present, helping you to become familiar with them before having to rely upon silhouettes, bark and buds. A range of specimens’ and use of keys will enable attendees to distinguish between many of the British trees. The focus of this one-day course will be broad-leaved trees although conifers will be looked at in less detail. This course will also look at the range of British woodlands, planted, semi-natural and ancient, their ecology and management.
