Winter trees for Urban Naturalist

Posted on

This afternoon I’ve been looking out specimens to show at tomorrows Urban Naturalists event on winter tree identification. It’s harder than you might think to find objects to show from the collection. Manchester’s botanists really liked leaves and flowers (which don’t really give the right feel for January) and curiosities (looking at abnormal growths probably won’t help much with identifying a healthy tree).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Luckily they were also interested in economic botany and so we’ve also got plenty of timber. These microscope slides are lovely, but I think they’ll have to wait for another event. This weekend, it’s time for the logs to go out on display.
