Identify Trees from Twigs and Buds
In winter, when trees are bare, it can be tricky to tell them apart. The twig ID sheet features pictures of twigs and their buds so you can match them up to the trees you find outdoors (when you're out with a grown-up). Remember, some trees are thorny so watch out for sharp prickles!
