The Growth of Trees: A Journey Through Time
Virtual Lecture 




No single view of a tree is a fixed snapshot in time that tells the complete story. Join Michael Wojtech and discover how trees grow, reproduce, and interact with their environment across days, weeks, seasons, and years and over varying scales—from the intricate details of buds, flowers, leaves, and bark that we use for species identification to the collaborative roles of trees in ecosystems. Learn more about the function and experience the beauty of characteristics such as peeling bark, overwintering buds, lobed or toothed leaves, flowers by the thousands, and seeds that fly on the wind. Join us for this virtual lecture!

Michael Wojtech

As a naturalist, writer, photographer, illustrator and educator, Michael strives to share the science and beauty of natural history in an accessible and compelling fashion. He writes and teaches about the fascinating structure, function, and ecology of trees—including their bark, buds, leaves, roots, and wood—for audiences at all levels of experience, and explores how knowing the natural history of the places we live and love fosters connection and the feeling of home. Michael earned his Master’s Degree in Conservation Biology from Antioch University New England and is the author of Bark: A Field Guide to Trees in the Northeast and co-author of Drawing Trees and Leaves.
