Ash Tree ID COurse

Family Fun, KCC events, Nature & Wildlife

Lullingstone Country Park, Dartford

Come and learn how to identify all the trees in our landscape, followed by a special ash walk in our beautiful Kent Country Parks.

This is a free event but please book via the following link - http://www.theashproject.org.uk/ash-tree-id-lullingstone/

Have you ever wanted to know your Ash from your Walnut or your Beech from your Hornbeam? Come and learn what makes ash so distinctive in the landscapes of Kent. This tree ID course will offer a practical guide to being able to identify all of the native trees in the woodlands of Kent, with a special focus on ash trees.

This course will cover the foundations of tree identification, including tree reproduction, structure and growth, how to identify trees throughout the seasons and a walk among the ash trees to practice your skills. The course is run by Mike Phillips who has been working with and around trees in Kent for many years and one of the lovely and experienced ranger team from Lullingstone Country Park.

There will be plenty of time to ask questions, drink tea and spend time with the ash trees at Lullingstone Country Park.The course is suitable for all ages.

Mike Phillips first started teaching people about trees and how to identify them alongside coordinating the Kent Tree Warden Scheme. Kent Tree Wardens look after the trees in their locality and are still operating today as an independent group. Mike was the training officer at Kent TCV (now Tree Conservation Volunteers). His work also includes working in both community and commercial woodlands and working with people to enhance the biodiversity of their woodlands.
