Or asked yourself, “what is the difference between Black Ash and Green Ash”, or “the difference between Balsam Fir and White Spruce” and “why is it important I know”? We will review 70% of the tree species found on the Northern Peninsula, and I will give you the information and tools to identify them via bark, twigs, smell, leaves and the habitat they are found in.
