In this Lunch & Learn workshop, we'll show you how you can decode the botanical names of trees, revealing helpful descriptions for identification, as well as fascinating facts about their native origin, uses, and even the botanists who discovered them. Using examples of trees found within the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum and seven Neighborhood Arboreta throughout Atlanta, we'll cover the basics of binomial nomenclature, discuss the differences between scientific and common names, and provide you with a cheat sheet for peeling back the hidden stories about the sentinels of Atlanta's urban forest.
