Autumn Tree ID Walk

Experience autumn at its best by joining Phyllis Smith, Natural Resources Agent for N.C. Cooperative Extension, Forsyth County Center, and Adam Tran, Extension Master Gardener Volunteer, on a guided hike through a hardwood forest to observe the wonderful diversity of Piedmont NC native hardwood trees and the rich variety of shapes and colors they offer each fall. Learn about the chemical changes and environmental conditions that work together to produce a unique show each year, and discover how leaf shapes and colors can be used for tree identification.

We’ll start at Forsyth County’s Tanglewood Park Arboretum, and then wind our way through the adjacent Nature Trail. The approximately ½ mile trail is unpaved and rated easy to intermediate. Participants should wear closed-toed hiking boots or comfortable sneakers and bring their own water bottle.
