Identifying a dormant tree is not nearly as complicated as it might seem at first glance. Dormant tree identification will demand some dedication to apply the necessary practice to improve the skill of identifying trees without leaves.

I have compiled this gallery to augment your study of trees in winter to better identify tree species. Use this gallery and follow my instructions in A Beginning Guide to Winter Tree Identification. Using your powers of observation, you will find a pleasurable and beneficial way to enhance your skills as a naturalist - even in the dead of winter.

Learning to identify a tree without leaves can immediately make your growing season trees easier to name.
