Urban Tree Survey

Over the summer holidays I have been carrying out an urban tree survey. In order to help me I have used a leaf chart downloaded from the natural history museum. I have been recording if the leaves are  compound or simple and how they are arranged on the twigs. I have also looked at the  shape and textures of the leafs.

I have discovered that the most common trees in my area are the alder, beech, holly, oak and sycamore. We also have a lot of weeping willows which suggest water must be close by.
