Twig identification guide

Use this iDial to help you identify trees all year round.

Twigs give us lots of clues for tree ID, even if the trees are leafless - can you find out which trees your twigs have come from?

  • Hunt for these sticks on the forest floor and among the branches
  • Can you spot any new leaves coming through on the twigs?
  • When you find a twig, try guessing which tree it comes from, then check your iDial to see if you were right.

Make sure you take this iDial with you when you go to the woods or play in your garden. Once you’ve spotted some twigs, try making something from them.
