Activity:

Can you go on a tree hunt and tick off all the different trees that you found around your local area? When you’re home you could even create a tally chart to show the different trees that you found. If you find a tree and you can’t identify the leaf, why not download The Woodland Trust Tree ID app! Identify the tree by its features and you will find out which tree it is!
