Event description
A introduction to native trees, their history and how to identify them, focusing on trees that are likely to be found in Essex.

About this event

Native woodlands and the way they have been managed are an often-overlooked aspect of our history. The course will begin with an introduction to and history of native woodlands, looking at what defines a native tree and moving on to the state of our woodlands in the present day. It will focus on trees that are likely to be found in the woodlands and hedgerows of Essex and will explain how we identify trees using a combination of clues such as leaves, buds, bark, tree height and location. Simple identification keys will also be discussed. The course is aimed at those with little or no experience of native tree identification but should also appeal to those with some knowledge of the subject.

This course is in partnership with and is being offered at a reduced rate as part of the Land of the Fanns Landscape Partnership Scheme thanks to funding from National Lottery Heritage Fund.
