New Englanders - Get ready for Tree Observations!
New England Leaf Out Project - Special Campaign
Are trees in the New England region leafing out earlier than they did in the past? Do tree species leaf out at different times? These are questions that researchers at Boston University are trying to answer. You can assist them in this aim by tracking the leaf-out of ten deciduous tree species.
Follow the link to the National Phenology Network's special campaign page to see the list of recommended species that will help track leafout for scientists..
