Shrubs and Understory Trees of Central and Eastern Kentucky

October 14, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Instructor: Rob Paratley, University of Kentucky

Hiking Level: Moderate to Difficult

Apart from the major trees in our forests, smaller woody plants add greatly to the diversity of our ecosystems. We can use the same skills and field characters that are used to identify the oaks, maples, and other major trees, and apply them to learning the many understory woody plants that add to the complexity of our native vegetation. Understory shrubs and small trees can also help us understand a site’s soil characteristics and disturbance history. This workshop will include a morning hike at Floracliff and an afternoon hike in the Daniel Boone National Forest.
