The natural world is mostly dormant and quiet in the depths of winter. Deciduous trees and shrubs drop their leaves, ceasing photosynthesis until spring. You may think it is difficult to identify these plants in winter, but each species has telltale characteristics you can learn to recognize. Naturalist Ivan Phillipsen helps you get your bearings in the winter woods with information on the bark, buds, and overall shapes of leafless trees and shrubs. Some species covered will be big leaf maple, red alder, Oregon white oak, beaked hazelnut, and many more!
