RSP Tree Planting


We had the following research questions:
Climate change (What is it? How is it affecting us? How can trees help?)
What trees are native in Ontario?
What is the cost of 5 different species of trees?
What would be the best placement of the tree on the school property?
What tree do you feel we should plant and why?


Climate change refers to the long-term changes in global temperatures and other characteristics of the atmosphere. This can cause many changes to the environment that we and trees live in. One reason why climate change may affect trees, is by increasing or decreasing their population. Another reason why climate change affects trees, is that it may change position of their habitat or, in other cases the whole habitat may just disappear. Climate change is also the reason why many plants like trees are disappearing, this causes a lot of animals to lose their home.

Climate change affects us by causing the water levels to rise in any body of water. Climate change also rises the chances of extreme weather events. Climate change can also cause flooding or droughts which have diseases hidden beneath them. Climate change also reduces the amount of biodiversity on earth, this is a big deal as many resources and animals will never stay on the face of earth. These impacts threaten us by affecting the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the weather we experience.

Trees can combat climate change by absorbing and storing greenhouse gases, regulating water levels, protecting shorelines from storm surges and erosion, and even cool down cities. Trees can also protect against floods and water pollution, furthermore trees provide us with oxygen, and if oxygen levels reduce, the earth’s atmosphere becomes more thin and can let in more sunlight than needed. One more reason why trees reduce climate change is because they filter harmful gases and reduce air pollution throughout earth.

Our class selected a Pink Cherry Blossom because our school colour is pink.
