Winter Tree Identification: Two Trips or Mini-Workshops

Field trips and Mini-Workshops of the Arkansas Native Plant Society are for current and future members. (That’s right: Everyone is welcome!)  Botanists from around the state lead these enjoyable and informative walks.  Please let trip leaders know you are coming in case of last minute changes.  Be sure to call them if the weather is uncertain.

winter treeSaturday, January 18, 2014.  1 p.m.  Winter Tree Identification for Beginners.  Rebsamen Municipal Golf Course, Little Rock.  Leader: Eric Sundell (870-723-1089).

Instead of leaves and flowers, we’ll use the characters of twigs, buds, and scars to identify trees in winter condition.  Ulterior motive: Eric would like help field testing the new Key to Trees in Winter that will be included in the Arkansas Forestry Commission’s forthcoming edition of their handbook, Dwight Moore’s Trees of Arkansas. Meet at the golf course Pro Shop off Rebsamen Park Road at 1 p.m. If you plan to attend, please contact Eric at for more information, directions, and to receive a digital copy of “Key to Trees in Winter.” Call if the weather looks questionable.

Saturday, January 25, 2014.  1 p.m.  More Winter Tree Identification for Beginners.  Allsop Park Pavilion, Little Rock.  Leader: Eric Sundell (870-723-1089).

We’ll try the new key and our ID skills on different trees, so feel free to attend one or both Winter Tree ID sessions. The Allsop Park pavilion is in the recreation area off Cedar Hill Road just north of the red light/junction with Cantrell Road. If you did not attend the first week, be sure to email Eric for a digital copy of the “Key to Trees in Winter.”
