Urban Forestry: Laboratory Exercisess

These forestry lesson plans and field activities teach students: how trees function in an urban setting; how to collect data on trees in their urban environment in order to determine how well the tree is surviving; and how to participate in the development of an urban forest within their community. There are lessons to classify trees; measure the height, age, and growth rates of trees; and compare temperatures, textures, and water content of soil beneath trees. There are also word search puzzles, quizzes, and a glossary.
