Twig identification

Identify trees just using their twigs.

Ready to be a real Nature Detective? Keep your eyes peeled for these twigs while you’re out and about. 

  • Do you think birds would use any of the sticks to build their nests? 
  • Look out for twigs on the woodland floor – some are thin and short, some are fat and long 
  • Can you tell which trees they’ve come from?

Look for twigs all over the woods. Use them to build something twig-tastic!
