A year of a Tree
I have just found this idea via another blog. You can find the full idea here at A Year of a Tree.
Basically you pick a tree and observe it regularly through out the year seeing what it is like and how it changes over time. I have had a word with Noddles and we have agreed we will do it and pick a tree in the park we walk through every day to go to school.
The photo above is part of the park taken last year in the snow. We will go over sometime this week and chose a tree, it's half-term so one of the few weeks in the year we aren't going through it daily!
This is another part of the park
and these two are a couple of big mature trees just outside the park we sometimes walk past if we go round instead of through the park.
So plenty to choose from and that's without considering the trees lining Binley Rd or the Conker trees in the other park or all the trees on the old railway embankment between the school and another public green space on the other side of the road !
Once we have chosen our tree I will post here and join the Year of a Tree group properly.
