Carroll County: Autumn Tree Identification

  • October 17, 2015
  • 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Mississippi Palisades State Park


  • In case of any last minute schedule changes

Registration is closed

The Northwest Illinois Forestry Association is sponsoring a tree identification field event at Mississippi Palisades State Park on Saturday, October 17th, at 1:00 pm.  In May, NIFA toured the Shimer Arboretum and discussed tree identification of mature trees in the spring by bark, shape, and flowers.  Now in October, this tour will identify younger trees in the fall by buds and branch configurations.  In addition, there will be a discussion of corrective pruning to solve some undesirable tree forms.

Tour leader is Jeff Harris, IDNR District Forester.  The tour is free and open to the public and will start at the north entrance to Mississippi Palisades State Park, on Illinois 84 - 18 miles south of US Route 20 or 3 miles north of Savanna.

This event is free and open to the public.  However, we ask that you register so that we may contact you in case weather or other circumstances cause a schedule change.
