Event description

Description

Are you bamboozled by which tree is which? This course will open your eyes and give you much more confidence so that you know which tree you are looking at. We will be looking at leaves, twigs, buds, bark and tree form to come up with the correct species (most of the time!) We will also look at a few evergreens, including common conifers, too.

Experience Level - No experience required.

Instructor’s DetailsDonald McPhillimy - I started my forestry career building log cabins on the west coast of Argyll and have since then worked for a forestry estate, New Zealand Forest Service, Scottish Woodlands, New Caledonian Woodlands and mainly for myself. I like all kinds of forests & woods even Sitka spruce plantations. I especially like pruning, coppicing, making campfires and cooking sausages.

What to bring with you – Packed lunch, a good tree ID book, such as the Collins Guide to Trees. A small book is more useful than a comprehensive one. An A4 plain paper pad and a few pencils and pens. Warm clothes, as we will be standing about some of the time. Wellies or boots. Waterproofs (just in case).
