Location - Astoria Senior Center
1111 Exchange Street, Astoria
and field trip location to be announced
We'll meet for 2 hours indoors, where Erhard will go into systematic criteria in tree identification
by showing samples of twigs and seeds of different leaf and needle trees. After lunch at the Senior
Center or nearby eateries, we will proceed to field work by driving to various locations in or near
town where we will visit the actual trees and observe their shapes, bark, crowns and trunks.
We'll also discuss forestry practices, dendrochronology and uses of wood.
