Urban Tree: Dendrology (Tree ID)
A component of the Georgia Master Gardener urban forestry training program.
Dendrology actually means "the study of trees." The study of dendrology also includes knowledge about characteristics of trees and their geographical range. Learning how to identify trees takes time and experience, but once familiar with how to do it, it is a valuable skill for urban foresters.
