This beginner tree identification course will help you learn to use features such as twigs, buds and bark to identify broadleaved tree species during winter.

This is the perfect course for beginners looking to develop their broadleaf tree identification skills using features other than leaves.

This tree identification course will cover an overview of the changes broadleaved trees undergo during the winter season, the key features needed to identify trees in winter (twigs, buds and bark) and species profiles for a number of common UK broadleaf tree species. By the end of the course, you will be able to use botanical terms to describe key winter tree features and use them to recognise a variety of common tree species in the UK.
