Everyone seems to have a great affinity for trees, but wish they could identify more of them. Mark Mikolas, author of “A Beginner’s Guide to Recognizing Trees”, will discuss a new approach that enables people to recognize trees at a glance, just as foresters do. In this friendly and approachable field guide, writer and avid hiker Mark Mikolas share a unique approach for year-round tree identification. Location maps for each of the 40 species covered and more than 400 photographs illustrating key characteristics make the trees easy to identify.
Mikolas has been an avid outdoorsman since being a Boy Scout in the 1950s. He is also the author of “Nature Walks in Southern Vermont”, published by the Appalachian Mountain Club, as well as many magazine articles.
