Champion Tree

Students will learn how to measure the height of trees through a couple of different methods. We will use a modified version of the Champion Tree Formula to compare trees and discover if we have a "Champion Tree" among us. In our post visit, we will also calculate the amount of oxygen our trees can produce and also discuss the importance of trees in our world.
