    Default Standardized Worksheet for Tree Identification

    Would it be possible for a BCUSA member forester, if they are willing and BCUSA approves, to create a simple, standardized worksheet to enable members seeking to ID trees in their area with a worksheet to fill out and then submit?

    I'm thinking this would both help the submitting member, and also all viewing members because it would be standardized and could be printed off for future use and added to a folder. In addition, it would better assist the members seeking to help ID the tree because it would provide a completed profile.

    The form, with instructions could be made a sticky and members could print that form off, make copies and then head out to fill it out and take pictures. We would then come back and upload our findings to help us try and ID the tree in question.

    If any foresters see this and think this would be a good idea, please consider something like this. Do you foresters think something like this would work? Would it be a valuable tool?

    Great idea Bill. If BCUSA approves, I would be willing to make one up exclusively for Bushcrafters. I might need a little help with design and computer stuff.

    Love the idea. Would be nice to see the top five useful species native to each state or province (canada)

    Fantastic idea! Would be useful for taking the kids out for tree identification. Print one for each kid and tell them they have an hour to ID as many as they can and bring back leaf or a pic to show the proof.

    Sounds like a great idea, and a good learning tool as well.

    Steven,

    Your recent post on the slippery elm prompted the idea and I thank you for working on this. Tree I'd is one of my major goals to get serious about learning. Now if we could only find someone that could help lay it out or design it, but it may just need to be some basic instructions on photographing certain parts and such and a "15" point checklist.

    Thank you again

    Bill
