Tree Planting

Last month, my ecology class went to the nature reserve on our campus to plant trees and collect data on past tree planting excursions done by past groups in this course.

In the photo set above: The Sugar Maple (Acer saccharum) my partner and I planted in the University of Waterloo’s Nature Reserve.

In total, my lab section planted 12 trees, and with eleven lab sections, it is safe to assume that approximately 132 trees were planted in the nature reserve throughout the week.

After planting trees, we collected data on trees planted in earlier years of this course, taking notes on their growth, specifically measuring the base of the tree and taking notes on the trees overall success based on visual observations.
