trees: impressive & useful giants
“Trees are the poems which earth writes for heaven!“ Khalil Gilbran
Singapore is home to countless trees which create a green cityscape and make the city more liveable. This excursion teaches about the benefits of Singapore’s native and non-native tree species. During the tour, participants learn to identify the most common tree species by their shape, leaves, bark and (where possible) their blossoms and fruits.
How high does this species grow? How big is its trunk? How many leaves does this tree have? Can the leaf area be estimated? How much water does this tree cause to evaporate? This is an opportunity for theoretical knowledge from the classroom to be practically applied.
