Tree Identification

In this video from the WPSU’s series Outside, a staff member at Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center at Penn State University explains how being able to identify trees can make a winter walk through the woods more enjoyable. First, you can classify a tree into one of two groups: a conifer that holds its leaves or needles year round, or a deciduous tree that drops leaves annually. Next, observe each tree's characteristics: the type of bark, the branching pattern of a twig, the shape of a bud, and the appearance of fruit or seeds.

This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
