Samantha is the first to publish her full report on the trees she removed ivy from in our class this semester. She has removed ivy from 16 trees and learned about parts of the campus she had never been to in the process. She presented the PowerPoint to the class and really conveyed how much she got out of the project.
Nicholas gave a very informative lecture about the applications of GIS. He showed us a map of all the trees on campus with the ability to track different statistics about the trees even whether they were affected by ivy or invasive insects. You can also map areas affected by different invasive species.
Better late than never but the UMBC Treedom Fighters planted some tulip blubs on March 26th with the help of Ilan. Here Ilan shows Dan and Nohaa how to make the holes for the bulbs and which way to plant them (points facing up!)
With the 2014 spring semster now fully underway, we are proud to introduce the newest members of the UMBC Treedom Fighters. From left to right: Allison Kupiac, Susan Galdieri. Leah Groner and returning Co-Professor Donna Anderson.
Spring is here or at least the spring semester. The world here is actually shimmering with ice–beautiful to look at. So we cannot cut a few vines today.
Save UMBC Trees has three new students this semester: Leah Groner, Allison Kupiac, and Susan Galdieri. Daniel from the Success program is a returning student. Watch this space for photos of the new crew of Treedom Fighters at work.
