Bark and Buds: Winter Identification of Trees and Shrubs

December 09, 2017       10:00 AM - 02:00 PM
Location: Education Center at Berkshire Botanical Garden

Bring a bag lunch. Dress for limited outdoor fieldwork.
 
Discover the many plants that lend bark, buds, fruit and structural interest to the garden in fall and winter. Under the expert guidance of Brad Roeller, develop your ability to identify winter trees by twig and bud anatomy, bark features and plant architecture. Students will practice their skills with winter tree dichotomous keys. This class will be indoors primarily and participants will work with collected specimens. Class enrollment is limited.
 
Brad Roeller is a private landscape garden supervisor for Altamont Estate in New York. He is the former Garden Manager for the New York Botanical Garden and has spent his entire career in horticulture, with a focus in sustainable gardening. He lectures extensively and instructs at the New York Botanical Garden, Berkshire Botanical Garden, and New England Grows.
