A big thing in Thursatru seems to be self reliance and collecting ingredients for yourself when possible. To do this, you'd need to be able to identify trees, plants, etc. for collection. I love this aspect as it both makes you aware of your surroundings and has practical benefit as a grounding in survival training. I just don't know where to start.

There are some sites that help narrow things down to your local area, this one provides a list with images based on your zip code:

This is perfect. Was able to quicky identify the tree in question. Great news is that the primary tree I need is in my own backyard. Bad news is it's gonna take a lot of practice to be able to identify the other ones around here.

Seconding this question - being able to identify plants is a skill I'd love to have but don't really know where to start. From what I know about it, it's something best learnt by practice, but how to practice without someone telling you whether you got it right?
Any recommendations focusing on European flora?
