March 31 – April 2: Field Work

The past week and a half we have been mapping out the location of each tree on the floodplain including various estimates on; the circumference and height of the trees, whether they are native species or not, if they are included in the arboretum  and the tree type. We used the pencil method to find the estimated height and measured the circumference with a measuring tap from the geology department.

This data has never been collected before and will be very important as we try to predict a path for the delaware run. We are currently placing our data in arcGIS in order to create a map with our individual attributes.
