This week, I want you to do an investigation for me! My question is this:
Which trees do you have in your gardens or nearby, and how many of them are there?
Below is a leaf identification sheet that will help you identify many of our native tree species. First, take a good look in your gardens, your neighbour's gardens (from the fence!) and the street you live on. You could even go further afield as there are plenty of wooded areas nearby. Which trees do you notice? Make a list. Then start a tally to count how many of each kind of tree you spot. You could represent your data as a bar chart too.
