tree ID website
« on: February 19, 2012, 11:20:52 PM »
Here is a website that I sometimes use when trying to figure out a tricky tree, shrub, or vine. I would still cross check with a book or something, especially if I was going to use eat the plant. But it gets you pretty close.

Also, I advise cue king your local DNR or County Extension to see if plant is a native or a non-native invasive species like buckthorn here in Ohio.

Also, I it might not be a bad idea to treat your blades with alcohol after each outing or use when removing a green beach or tree. Reason being, if you remove a limb from a tree and then cut another tree afterwards, you can potentially infect the later with what ever the diarrhea plant may of had. Plus it is a good excuse to bring some Wild Turkey orwhat ever else suits you into the field.

Sorry, didn't want to seem to "preachy" with the end comment, but something to think about.

Good  advice now that you mention it I do recall reading that years ago about treating your tools that way

Not too preachy at all just being a good steward of the trees. I like the idea of multi purpose Wild Turkey too. I carry Kettle One vodka myself.

That is an interesting consideration. I've heard of orchids and african violets getting infected with plant viruses by pruning with tools used on another plant, so it makes sense that a virus could pass between trees this way as well.

Something to consider.

I never heard of pass tree colds on but it makes sense. 

I put the website that you recommended in my Favorites.  It seams really easy to use.  Tree ID is a real weakness for me.

Thanks for the post.

Thanks for the link, looks like a very useful website. I too have a tree id weakness so this will really be a benefit to me.
