FOR 424:  Vegetation of West Virginia (52462)

This is an intensive, two-week course where students will learn how to identify common trees, shrubs, and woody vines of West Virginia.  Lectures will focus on the life history (silvical) traits and distinctive characteristics of woody plants.  Daily field excursions introduce students to the attributes used to identify seedlings, saplings, and mature plants.  Included will be field trips to bottomland forests, high elevation red spruce and northern hardwood forests, as well as oak-hickory and cove hardwood forests more typical of the region.  This course is designed for majors in the Division of Forestry and Natural Resources but is appropriate for anyone with an interest in tree identification.
