Vermont Land Trust will hold a 4-part series of 30-minute Tree Identification webinars on Tuesdays this winter that will help participants identify different tree species, discuss the possible climate futures of those trees, and explain ways to manage them to promote and protect the special values they bring to Vermont’s forests.
The first program in the 4-part series on January 31st from Noon to 12:30 pm will use photos to help distinguish between hemlock and red maple and their look-alikes. Hemlock is a keystone species and red maple is a generalist. The program will discuss what this means and what the future may hold for these two species and the other trees they commonly grow with as our climate continues to shift.
