What is the Summer Tree Quest?
Are common trees around you green and dense with leaves? Do they have fruits? Is the pattern of leafing and fruiting changing from one year to the next and is this due to climate change? Unfortunately, we don't have the data to verify these suspicions. The Summer Tree Quest helps us fill these data gaps through the participation of interested citizens like you!
Tree Quests are held across India every three months, to get a snapshot of the leafing, flowering and fruiting patterns of common trees. When enough of this kind of data has been collected, we can compare patterns within and between years to really understand what is changing and how..
The Summer Tree Quest (14-17 June 2019) is the second SeasonWatch bioblitz event this year and it hopes to capture the patterns of leafing flowering and fruiting of trees in the summer season
You can choose to do this for as many trees as you want and also on one or more days between the 14th and 17th of June 2019. You cannot repeat observations on the same tree more than once. If you participated in the Spring Tree Quest held in March, (if possible) do revisit the trees you reported the last time round and let us know if you saw any changes this season!
