Trees and Carbon
Explore the trees in the forest to find out about life cycles, photosynthesis, identification, pollination, seed dispersal & germination. In a small group, pupils will measure the height and girth of one tree. From these measurements, they will be able to calculate both the age of the tree and how much carbon it is storing.
We will discuss why it is important that carbon is taken from the atmosphere and stored in plants to help mitigate climate warming.
