Tree ID and pollution survey with St Joseph’s College Students

On Thursday 26th May 32 students from St Joseph’s College STEM Club joined Nature Vibezzz to take part in a Tree ID and pollution survey on Streatham Common, Lambeth, London. This was the last of 3 environmental education activities run by Nature Vibezzz with the STEM Club during this school term.

The STEM Club students measured various trees distance from the road, tested them to find how much pollution was on the tree bark and identified them using tree ID charts. The students found the trees closer to the road had more pollution on their bark than trees further away. Trees they identified included horse chestnut (conker trees) and hawthorn trees.
