Tracking for Success at St. Igantius Jesuit Centre in Guelph

On December 12th, 2014, the students at St. Ignatius Jesuit Centre in Guelph measured trees planted this past spring to collect the first growth measurements for their long-term tree monitoring data. This site is now a part of ACER’s Tracking for Success program, where 10% of each species is monitored over a long period of time to track its growth success.

Students learnt to measure root collar, height/diameter, crown width and health status. Trees were also mapped using GPS and a sketch map.

Thanks to the students for their enthusiasm and help with this program.
