Katherine’s biggest Study Tree, a massive Red Oak
The Macoun Club launched its Study-Tree project in the autumn of 1991. Essentially all these trees are in a 10-acre hardwood forest on the west side of the Macoun Field Club’s nature-study-area in Ottawa’s western greenbelt (Stony Swamp). For 30 years, almost every Macoun member since then (and this is 2021) has chosen one or more trees, and to this day, Rob Lee knows those trees by the names of the kids who chose them. He keeps track of them, too. and this page brings you up to date. But only for trees chosen before 10 years ago, at which point those kids would now be over age 18 and it would be OK to use their full names.
If you have gone back but weren’t been able to find your tree, contact Rob at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Trees that were alive when chosen, and for as long as they live, even if just barely, they are featured in green type. Those that have either died, or were dead, or were even logs when chosen, appear in reddish-brown type.
The people who chose the trees are listed in alphabetical order. Click on the following letters to advance to the first names beginning with that letter:
