Short Description of Activity
Laurie stopped by the Chehalis Land Trust Discovery Trail on the way back from the Broadwalk to see how many trees survived the heat wave.
I noted 75% survivability for the Big Leaf Maple (22/29), 39% survivability for the Red Alder (14/36), and 62% survived (10/16) for the Doug Firs. The overall survival rate for all of the species was 57% (46/81). I only took a sample of the trees by photographing them as I walked around so this is only a small sample. The location of the trees had alot to do with their survival rate; the ones getting shade from larger trees survived the most.
