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.
