For Those Interested in Tree Identification

Don Leopold, Distinguished Teaching Professor and Chair Department of Environmental and Forest Biology at SUNY-ESF, and Christopher Baycura, ITS office at ESF, have a total of 135 short tree vignettes described on this You Tube site.  Each video is typically about 2 minute long, in HD video, and briefly summarizes how to identify each tree, its ecological characteristics, importance, and whatever else came to mind.

They've covered most of the trees that one would encounter in the woods or in landscapes in upstate NY and throughout the Northeast, that are cold hardy in Central New York.  They include both native and non-native species as well as many western US tree species. These vignettes are also all available for free on i-Tunes.
