You are invited to get involved in this unique citizen science project!
The aim of this project, led by Western Sydney University and University of New England, is to collect observations of dead or dying trees around Australia. It sounds a bit grim, but knowing where and when trees have died will help us to work out what the cause is, identify trees that are vulnerable, and take steps to protect them.
This project invites people Australia-wide to report observations of tree death. In the past, there have been many occurrences of large-scale tree death that were initially identified by concerned members of the public such as farmers, bushwalkers, bird watchers or landholders. Collecting these observations is an important way to monitor the health of trees and ecosystems.
To get involved, simply upload a photograph of any dead or dying trees you notice in your area, together with the date and location.
Full project details and the link to upload your photographs are available here.
