Tree Identification Workshops

About Tree Identification Workshops

Beginning in 2020, the Tree Care Advocate will begin offering Tree Identification Workshops. These workshops will span the course of the year and allow individuals to attend specific topics related to identification.

These workshops are intended for those that have limited or no experience related to identification. We recommend those interested take the workshops which best address their weaknesses in order to establish a well-rounded identification skillset. Workshops will begin by covering the basic concepts and knowledge needed to begin identifying and will then prioritize tips and tricks to help aid the identification process. Please note that each class will be limited to 30 individuals, so if you already have a well-established or advanced tree identification knowledge, we encourage that you kindly leave space in these classes for new and less-experienced individuals.
