Meet the Trees
Maple, Beech, Oak, Pine. Cherry, Elm, Chestnut, Sycamore. The list of tree species goes on!
Do you know which ones are in your yard or neighborhood? Grab your kids and explore the trees near you. Feel the bark and notice its characteristics. What shape are its leaves? Does it have a smell? What animals do you notice in its branches?
Bring a tree guide with you, and try to identify each one. Knowledge of what’s near will only add to the love and understanding of the world around us.
Get a tree guide or find a website that identifies trees near you.
Head outside and see which ones you can ID.
Click "I've Done This" to get your points, then proudly share your new knowledge with your friends.
Can you name that one? You get one hint: It's an Arizona aspen.
