ELKTON — The Oregon State University Extension Service of Douglas County will offer a free tree identification class.

The class is from 9 to 11 a.m. on Wednesday July 11 at the Elkton Community Education Center. 

The center’s four-and-a-half-acre botanical garden includes the seven climate zones of Oregon and the typical trees that might be found in each region.

“Tree identification is more than just knowing what you’ve got planted in the back yard,” according to an ECEC news release. “Is your tree native to the region? Is it suited to the area? There are a number of common-held beliefs regarding tree identification that aren’t true.”

During the class, extension agents will discuss the number of factors that affect tree life, such as available space, light, soil quality, temperature, water, susceptibility to insects and disease and required maintenance.

Pre-registration is requested and can be made by calling Holly Burton at 541-672-4461 or 1-800-883-7568.
