I'm looking for shortcuts, mnemonics, hacks or cheats to become an expert at identifying trees. What helped you? Despite having a passion for the woods, owning several great books on tree identification and even carrying an ID chart, the business of saying "Ah! An elm! Hey! A lime!" or indeed "No. 1: The Larch. The Larch" still eludes me. Please note - I'm in the UK.
