Big Tree Country: Introduction to Tree Identification

So you want to identify trees? This course aims to get you started or, if you know a bit already, to consolidate your knowledge. We shall be walking a lot and meeting many remarkable trees as well as the more common broad-leaved and conifer species. Perthshire is ‘Big Tree Country’ and the scenery is terrific. This is the best time of year for other woodland plants which we shall also enjoy. This course complements and can be combined with Tree Identification for Improvers which follows immediately afterwards. Book both courses together to receive a 15% discount on fees.

Jerry Dicker is a working arboriculturist and experinced teacher.
