Virginia Trees and How they Work
Trees grow all around us, yet we seldom think about how they survive in environments ranging from wind-swept mountains to inner-city lots. How exactly do trees “work”? In this class, we’ll explore the biology and ecology of our largest plants. September 20: Basic botany, including plant structures, growth, and reproduction. September 27: Trees in Virginia’s landscape, including historical losses, current threats, and future prospects. October 4: Tips and techniques for identifying trees, and October 11: A guided walk around Dell Pond to identify trees using field guides and other tools.
