Tim Trustham, ecologist with Quinte Conservation, shows one how to identify trees in winter by looking at their branches and the bark. First one decides if the tree is conferous or deciduous. Then one looks to see if the twigs are oposite or alternate. The only large trees in Hastings County that have oposite twigs are maples and ash. One can then look at the bark. He talks about the maples, black cherry and black oak, white elm, ash and cedars. The location, the HR Frink Centre Outdoor Education Centre, in Plainfield, Ontario is a wonderful place to walk in the woods.
