Virtual Tree Identification Workshops
The ability to correctly identify tree species is important for insect and disease treatment, accurate diagnosis and proper land and tree management. By recognizing the different characteristics in trees, species diversity on private and public lands can be increased, building resilience in our tree and forested resources.
