A Close Look at Oaks and Hickories: Ubiquitous Trees of the Southeast

When: Saturday, June 25, from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM

Instructor: Ron Lance, Biologist & Land Manager, North American Land Trust. 

"The oaks (Quercus) and hickories (Carya) are two of the most important genera of trees in the eastern forests. Their recognition and natural history is both challenging and fascinating for many people who are not aware of the diversity among the species. This program will illustrate those species native to Alabama, with a focus on identification features present in summer and winter. There will be 39 oak and 11 hickory species discussed, with natural history and horticultural utility saturating the narrative. Time will be spent in The Gardens to corroborate what we have learned."

Members $40 | Non-Members $45
