Trees Of Ohio Field Guide

Tree and Shrub Identification Program offered at Hocking College on May 24

One of the first steps to improving your woodland is to learn the species of trees and shrubs that grow there. However, with the amazing diversity of trees found in Appalachian Ohio, this can be a daunting task. Fortunately, with a little coaching and some practice, we are confident that you are up to the challenge.

Woodland owners and enthusiasts of all skill levels will be sure to benefit from “Tree and Shrub Identification” offered at Hocking College on May 24. First, you will learn to use a simple leaf key to guide you through the process of tree identification. Then you will have the opportunity to practice your skills using the key to identify a wide assortment of tree samples in the classroom. Later you will explore the woodlands around Hocking College with experienced foresters (a.k.a. tree geeks) to reinforce your tree and shrub identification skills. You will also learn about other characteristics, such as bark, branching, tree shape, and site conditions to help you to identify trees and shrubs at any time of the year.

This program, hosted by Hocking College, will take place at on May 24 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Natural Resources Building on the Hocking College campus located at 3301 Hocking Parkway, Nelsonville, OH 45764.
