This is a 3-week, off-campus summer course offered by the Division of Forestry and Natural Resources that is designed to guide students in developing expertise in tree and shrub identification.  The course is set up for any student with an interest in nature interpretation, field botany, forestry, or ecology.  The field portion of this class has intensive exposure to trees and shrubs common to the central Appalachians.  As a basic course in tree identification, it will provide students with an introduction to 42 families of woody trees, shrubs, and vines.  Daily field trips will include visits to a range of local plant communities including bottomlands, riparian areas, lake edges, early successional habitats, urban parks and residential areas, and regenerating and “high” forests.
