Conifers are cone-bearing woody ornamentals and are often evergreen, forming the structure of many landscape designs. Join us for the Conifer Identification for Green Industry Professionals webinar to improve your ability to identify and use coniferous ornamentals in Pennsylvania landscapes. Learn key identification characteristics, find out about new species and improved cultivars, and discover the pest issues you should know about before choosing some of these plants.

This class will be taught in two morning sessions by Dr. David Sanford, Professor of Horticulture, Penn State University. You will have a chance to practice your tree identification skills by participating in a virtual leaf-collection project. Each participant will receive comments about their project from the instructor. Each participant will also receive a copy of the Penn State Extension Conifer ID manual.
