Track a tree is a UK citizen science project that asks volunteers to visit their local woodlands, select a tree, and
record seasonal events as they take place in the immediate ecosystem of
the tree. Through recurring visits and focused observation volunteers
become familiarized with the tree’s particularities. You become a scientist of phenology,
the study of the seasonal-ecosystem interaction. Phenology observes
timing variations seasonal events, and the resulting affect on plant and
animal life. Recent rapid shifts in the earth’s climate make phenology
evermore interesting and important.
