DULUTH, ST. PETER, and ST. PAUL — Ever wonder how foresters ID trees in winter months? These workshops will take participants on a walk outside to learn the various ways to identify some of Minnesota’s most common trees and invasive woody plants. Summer identification focuses heavily on leaf structure. Winter identification will focus more on persistent characteristics like branching, bark, buds, leaf scars and habitat.
This winter, the University of Minnesota Extension has scheduled three Winter Tree ID Workshops. They will be held March 14 in Duluth and St. Peter and March 21 in St. Paul, MN. All workshops will be held from 9:00 AM till 12:00 PM (noon). There is a registration fee for these workshops.
