Tree Height, Wetlands, and the Invasive Task Force: Live from New York.

Students and teachers from the Mahopac High School in Mahopac, New York have been studying wetlands around their school and local area for years.  They have recently started taking tree height measurements to add the next level of observations to their wetland research. Invasive species, in New York, continue to have an impact on trees. Students from Mahopac High School, personnel from the Cornell Cooperative Extension at Cornell University and the Invasive Strike Force Team have been working to understand these impacts on trees and potentially eradicate these invasive species.
