Tree ID Challenge

Tree ID Challenge

Fancy becoming a leaf collector for day?

Head to a local park or outside nature space that has different types of trees. Investigate the shapes and colours of the trees, and the different types of leaves they have.

  • What do the leaf shapes look like? 
  • What do they feel and smell like? 

See how many different types of leaves you can find. You can do this in different places and draw a treemap. Which area has the most types of trees?

Bring a friend along for a tree id challenge and see who can collect the most, different types of tree leaves. You can even start a leaf collection system. Download leaf ID sheets from the Woodland Trust’s Nature Detectives website. Thanks to them for this activity.
