Identifying Trees in Winter*

Of all the seasons, it is the most challenging to identify trees in winter. Under expert guidance from Kim Davidson, you’ll learn tips and tricks for identification long after the leaves have fallen. Examine an assortment of twigs and discover the amazing variation in buds, leaf scars and stem textures. Then head out to the Meijer Gardens grounds to receive personal instruction coupled with the use of the Winter Tree Finder book—yours to keep—to discover how other characteristics, such as bark, fruit and habitat, can provide additional clues.
