Field Notes
We went out to our trail system behind our school because we wanted to find the diversity of trees in the Messalonskee trail system. The first two days were raining but the day we collected data for this species it stopped raining. We could smell the wet ground, hear the birds chirping and see the green plants like ferns and the leaves on the trees. We searched for the white pine tree and found a small white pine.
