Summer Tree Identification 

This workshop will look at the primary characteristics of Tennessee Valley area native trees such as leaf structure, branching patterns, bark, habitat and other identification features.  Doctor Craddock will also discuss tree biology, including some of the newer research on the critical nature of mycorrhizal associations in the forest, and tree care.  This workshop is part classroom and part field work, starting out with a classroom discussion and then some time in the field.  Some walking will be necessary but not physically demanding.

Instructor:  Hill Craddock, University of Tennessee Chattanooga Biology Professor and American Chestnut researcher.
