About the Event
Most of us know some tree names and can identify some leaf shapes. But there is so much more to identifying trees and understanding why they're the shape they are. We'll look at different ways to identify trees from their bark, buds, leaves and even their profile. We'll also explore the many ways humans have interacted with and used trees and woodland, looking at food, materials and medicines. During the day we'll make a collection of leaves and twigs, to help you with your tree ID.
Workshop programme You'll arrive by 10am, and be directed to workshop. From there, one of our experienced trainers will lead you through the workshop. All wood and tools are provided. The day finishes by 4pm. Please bring food and drink with you for the day; you are welcome to cook over the campfire. We provide tea and coffee throughout the day.
