This course is concerned with identification. Depending on weather conditions, much of Saturday will be spent at the Centre, sorting through specimens and getting to grips with the terminology of the features of the bare stems, the winter buds and (in the case of the conifers) needle arrangement and cones. We shall also practise working with different keys to identification. However, regardless of the weather, and especially on Sunday, we shall spend plenty of time exploring the local woods and hedgerows in order to put into practice what we have learned. This course is suitable for beginners and all those who love trees. No previous knowledge will be assumed. The content is also appropriate for anyone wishing to contribute to their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.

Ros Bennett is a freelance botanist and former member of FSC staff with a great enthusiasm for this magnificent group of plants.
