Course Overview

*This is the sixth of six Intensive Course sessions, and can be purchased individually or as part of the Full Bundle. Session 1 is a recommended prerequisite for subsequent sessions.


Presenter: Ian Caton

In this session, native plant authority Ian Caton will examine plants of the canopied landscape that exemplify the ecological characteristics described by Larry Weaner in previous sessions. His presentation will include plants found at all of the woodland’s vertical layers, from canopy to understory. He will also discuss their specific abilities to integrate with the unique colonization strategies inherent in woodland development and enhancement. Finally, Ian will present a group of “workhorse” native species for the woodland, including those that combine reliability with desirable aesthetic characteristics. 

Attendees will receive a 100+ page, login-protected course manual.

Applicable Regions: Eastern and Midwestern U.S. (Florida excluded).

Note: This course will have some repeated information from previous intensive design short courses.
