Fall Tree Identification Walk

As trees lose their green
chlorophyll in the fall, we get to see the colors they've been hiding
underneath all summer. Often, we can differentiate species of trees by their
fall foliage or spot interloping vines that have otherwise disguised themselves
in the canopy all year. This is our opportunity to work on some Tree ID in
"broad strokes," getting to know forest populations from a distance
through their unique mixes of color. We will also focus on other aspects of
identification like leaf structure, bark, habitat, or even timing of color
change or leaf drop. So come join herbalist and arborist Alex Klein for one
last glorious walk amongst the trees this season as they bid us farewell.
Instructor: Alex Klein
Alex Klein is an herbalist in
Boston, where he runs a humble practice offering sliding-scale consultations to
help his neighbors feel better using plant medicine. He works with people on
all sorts of health concerns, though given the impetus of our modern world,
most often finds himself helping clients with mental health and sleep
struggles, chronic illnesses and pain, and menstrual and digestive issues. He
trained under 7Song at the Northeast School of Botanical Medicine and
the Ithaca Free Clinic, and on occasion staffs herbal First Aid tents at
primitive skill gatherings. He has also climbed trees up and down the East
Coast as an arborist, getting to know well the goings on of the upper canopies,
as well as the understory of the forest through his botanical expeditions as a
wildcrafting herbalist. Alex sees himself as an intermediary between people and
plants, helping connect clients and students to nature in a way that can bring
enjoyment and ease to their lives.
