Do conifers confuse you? Do all deciduous trees look alike once the leaves fall? This class is for you, whether you simply need a refresher on tree identification or want to improve your existing skills. The class will begin at the Center for Urban Horticulture, with a review of basic tree identification techniques, use of taxonomic keys, and discussion of common landscape tree species and varieties found in the Pacific Northwest. This will be followed by an outdoor field session where you will practice what you have learned as we identify trees on the main campus of the University of Washington.
Taught by Bess Bronstein and Christina Pfeiffer
