BC Tree Posters

Celebrate National Forest Week

Free posters to help identify BC trees

Have you ever wondered what kind of tree was in your backyard, down the street, or in a nearby park or school yard?

These free, colour, tabloid-size (11 X 17) posters can help you recognize and identify the most common conifer tree species found in BC.

Learn the differences in tree needles, cones, and bark, and where they most commonly grow. Spot the difference between a sitka spruce and a lodgepole pine.

Each poster contains photos and information on several different BC tree species.
