Want to know the difference between a Hazel and a Hawthorn tree?! This course is ideal for those who want to learn the common British Trees. This one-day ‘Introduction to Summer Tree ID’ course caters for those interested in trees at beginner level but welcomes more experienced naturalists. This course will be taught by an experienced botanist with an infectious enthusiasm for trees!

Where? Cothele National Trust Estate, Cornwall
The course will cover an introduction to trees, their ecology and uses, followed by several activities based around learning and remembering tree species by their leaves, bark and flowers/seeds.
