Tree Talk Tuesdays: Hemlock and Red Maple

Past event
Jan 31, 2023, 12 to 12:30 PM

Dip your toes into tree identification and learn how climate change is likely to affect some of your favorite hardwoods and softwoods. Join the Vermont Land Trust's forestry team for lively 30-minute presentations that will help you identify various species, inform you on the climate futures of those trees, and give you ways to manage them to promote and protect the special values they bring to Vermont's forests.

The first in our 4-part series will use photos to help you distinguish between hemlock and red maple and their look-alikes. Hemlock is a keystone species and red maple is a generalist. We'll look at what this means and what the future may hold for these two species and the other trees they commonly grow with as our climate continues to shift. Sign up now at
