The Talking Tree
The Tweeting Tulip Tree is one of several trees in the Tree Observatory Project. In this project, researchers share their observations and data as they watch and measure the growth, behavior, and health of individual trees at the Arboretum. Scientists studying the Tweeting Tulip Tree provide observations of how the weather affects this tree and its neighbors, comment about nearby trees, explain the tree’s interactions with scientists, and provide news related to its health, growth, and needs. Followers can comment on posts and have discussions with the scientists.
