Focal Tree







Purpose: To give real-time and elapsed data on the changes in the environmental conditions that directly affect the male box elder tree. The data available will be:

  1. Light–full spectrum and PAR (photosynthetically active radiation)
  2. Temperature–ambient temperature
  3. Leaf moisture–moisture of the tree leaves
  4. Pressure–atmospheric pressure of the surrounding environment
  5. Soil moisture–moisture of the soil at the base of the tree
