Task 2 - Trees, Trees Everywhere!

1 post in this topic

We’ve looked in detail at one of the tree-dwelling denizens of the forest but what about the trees themselves? They ‘are’ the forest, after all. What’s more, it’s highly likely that there have been trees on this spot since before the school was founded. We could actually be standing amongst the descendants of trees that saw the arrival of the four founders and first Hogwarts students.

 

Your field assignment this time is (yes, you've guessed it) entirely tree-based! First, we’d like you to unscramble these 20 common names of trees and then put them in alphabetical order. Some are easy, others are definitely not. Some you might see in this clearing, others are more exotic.

rpalpo

yrpcses

Secondly, here are the Latin names of 10 trees. They’re the genus (group) rather than individual species. Do some research and tell us which type of tree they relate to:

Ulmus

Fraxinus

Castanea

Platanus

Corylus

Quercus

Salix

Juglans

Crataegus

Acer

 

The deadline for this task is the 19th of October. Please send your answers to us using the group PM that you set up for submitting task 1 (see that post for details).
