Study Trees Great and Small

Study Trees of the Macoun Field Club

For 20 years, young Macoun Club members have been choosing particular forest trees for their own. On every visit, we go back to see how our trees are doing. We look for signs of life and health, as well as injury and disease. What other life forms are involved in some way with our trees? Every member finds out for themselves.

Barbara's deep-split ash tree

Barbara Gaertner chose a century-old White Ash that had been burst asunder by lightning, but lived for another 30 years before she found it.
