Do I need special skills?
No. All you need is an interest for nature.
How much time does it take?
You only need a few minutes, a few times a week.
Is it difficult to make observations about trees?
Not at all. Please check the guide How to observe trees at the top of this page.
When do I need to observe my tree?
In the spring, most of the changes happen during the month of May. Observations can be made any time during the day.
At the end of the summer, depending on the type of tree, changes occur anywhere between late August and the end of October.
What tree should I chose to observe?
We made a list of the tree species targeted by this project.
If you have a nice, healthy tree growing on your property, that will be perfect. If you don’t own a house, you can choose to watch a nice healthy tree in your neighbourhood.
Do I need to know a lot about trees?
Not at all! If you need help identifying a tree, you can consult the Tree webpage from Natural Resources Canada
