Title:Summer Tree ID Workshop
Description:Saturday's May 25 and June 1 - This IAA Advanced Training Course will provide an in-depth study of several significant tree species found in Illinois. The primary focus will be on leaf morphology, complexity and arrangement on both deciduous and conifer trees. This is one of the most important means of identification because of the many characteristics available for observation and comparison. Identification based on bud, stem, bark and fruit/seed characteristics will also be covered since they are important features necessary to complete a thorough summer identification.
Classes will consist of an indoor study session and an outdoor observation period where specific examples of trees studied in the classroom will be examined. More than 75 different tree species (deciduous and evergreen) will be studied during the course. A 20 question multiple choice quiz will be given at the end of the class.
Recommended Reading: Manual of Woody Landscape Plants, Michael A. Dirr, 1988. The IAA member rate for the book is $103 and the non-member rate is $123 includes S/H.
