Module 4: Sampling

Topics addressed in this module include: what samples are needed for the TREE program, how to collect the samples, what equipment to use, how to use the equipment, and how to package everything back up to the labs.

  • Curricular Connections: Science, Math, Art

  • Resources: Human or Tool: Who is More Accurate Lesson, Sample Form Instructions, Sample Form, Preparing to Sample Collect Checklist

NOTE: Our TREE Sampling Guide, which is printed and included in our TREE Kits, is a condensed version of these sampling instructions. All the same info is there! Just presented in condensed version for field use. Either set of instructions will work but note that the Sampling Guide does also provide info on how to create the timeline and complete the other necessary step in order to just complete the citizen science aspect of TREE.
