The Forest School: Trees of the Eastern Temperate Forest

July 16, 2015
9:00am to 5:00pm
Highlands Nature Sanctuary, 7660 Cave Road, Bainbridge, OH 45612
Although America’s Great Eastern Forest claims well over 200 species of trees, learning just 40 to 45 of the predominant ones will allow you to travel anywhere in the Eastern Forest heartland - from New York to Tennessee - and identify with accuracy 90-95% of the standing trees. In fact, you could even travel to Europe and temperate Asia and be able to recognize nearly every tree as at least familiar, since those forests are so closely related to our own.
