species-celastrus-orbiculatus-was-found-roshe-2014-11-19 Roshe Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Oriental bittersweet Celastrus orbiculatus I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/roshe/image_5.jpg sites/default/files/roshe/image_8.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/208.jpg sites/default/files/roshe/image_9.jpg The leaves were old but they had the same features that the did before. sites/default/files/roshe/image_10.jpg The berries had a red orangish color on them. The leaves were white and dying. sites/default/files/roshe/image_11.jpg The berries were very small. They were located off the branches. We found the plant this time unlike last time. We saw red and orange berries so we knew it was our plant. We heard people talking in their groups and we smelt the fresh air. I am surprised that we found it this time because it didn't seem like the type year you'd find it in, considering it usually blossoms in early spring.
species-betula-papyrifera-was-found-smarties-2014-11-19 The Smarties Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Paper birch Betula papyrifera I think I found it Native sites/default/files/the_smarties/image.jpg sites/default/files/the_smarties/image_11.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/708.jpg sites/default/files/the_smarties/image_12.jpg The bark is white sites/default/files/the_smarties/image_13.jpg The branches are bare but there are leaves on the ground. sites/default/files/the_smarties/image_14.jpg The bark peels off. I see trees, leaves, people and plants.
species-fallopia-japonica-was-not-found-zeendrew-2014-11-19 Zeendrew Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Japanese knotweed Fallopia japonica I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/zeendrew/image_4.jpg sites/default/files/zeendrew/image_7.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/210.jpg sites/default/files/zeendrew/image_8.jpg We did not find it anywhere we looked and we looked around the woods and through the woods around our school. sites/default/files/zeendrew/image_10.jpg There was a lot of ice everywhere so it would probably be dead by now sites/default/files/zeendrew/image_9.jpg We looked near the water but didn't find it. Also along a stone wall but they didn't find it. They look like them far away but they are not. There is an old barn near the school and I am looking up around the field. We used a quadrat. There was ice everywhere so the species we chose would probably be dead by now. We didn't find the species we looked around the area it would be in and it was no where to be found. We also looked near waters but did not find it.
species-taxus-canadensis-was-found-men-top-hats-2014-11-19 The Men In Top Hats Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Canadian yew Taxus canadensis I think I found it Native sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_6.jpg sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_8.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/721.jpg sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_9.jpg The needles are evergreen and are one to two centimeters long. There were a very little amount of possibly Canadian Yew. sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_10.jpg When we found it, it was off the dirt trail and more in the middle of the woods and not near any water. sites/default/files/the_men_in_top_hats/image_11.jpg The needles are alternately laid out on the stem and were very smooth to the touch. We see trees and snow. We hear leaves rustling in the wind. We are COLD. We found what we think is American Yew was off the trail and not around any body of water.
species-rhamnus-cathartica-was-found-cleanup-crew-2014-11-19 The Cleanup Crew Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Common buckthorn Rhamnus cathartica I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/the_cleanup_crew/image_2.jpg sites/default/files/the_cleanup_crew/image_1.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/205.jpg sites/default/files/the_cleanup_crew/image_3.jpg It was discribed to have bumbs and the tree we found had bumbs on it and we could see we're the thorns would stick out in the summer. sites/default/files/the_cleanup_crew/image_4.jpg It is a small thin tree with thorns on it. sites/default/files/the_cleanup_crew/image_5.jpg It looks like they grow it groups and they all grow to about the same size.
species-pinus-resinosa-was-not-found-pink-fluffy-monsters-2014-11-19 Pink Fluffy Monsters Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 red pine Pinus resinosa I think I did not find it Native sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image_1.jpg sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image_3.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/red_pine_bark.jpg sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image_4.jpg The bark was not flakey as red pine. sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image_9.jpg The needles were shorter than the red pine. sites/default/files/pink_fluffy_monsters/image_10.jpg There were no pine cones on the tree we found. I am happy because even thought we didn't find the species we were looking for we found a similar one. The problems we ran into were there were a lot of trees that looked very similar and that we didn't find our specis. Questions that we had were why we didn't find our species because we have many around our homes and we live close to the school. During the observations I notice that I saw lots of trees, I heard the wind and the rustling of leaves, and I smelled pine, and grass. We were very surprised when we didn't find our organism because we see a lot of these trees around.
species-prunus-virginiana-was-not-found-titans-2014-11-19 Titans Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Chokecherry Prunus virginiana I think I did not find it Native sites/default/files/titans/image_5.jpg sites/default/files/titans/image_12.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/716.jpg sites/default/files/titans/image_13.jpg I'm surprised we found something similar. sites/default/files/titans/image_14.jpg The leaves we found are between 2-10cm which are sapposed to be the length of the leaf in the Chokecherry, but it's not the leaf. We are happy because we found something close to the Choke Cherry.
species-pinus-strobus-was-found-carebears-2014-11-19 Carebears Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 White pine Pinus strobus I think I found it Native sites/default/files/carebears/image_4.jpg sites/default/files/carebears/image_7.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/700.jpg sites/default/files/carebears/image_2.jpg The pine needles were 5-8 centimeter long and were a bright green. They grew in clumps, but for viewing purposes we just used one. sites/default/files/carebears/image_3.jpg The pine cone was 9 1/2 centimeters long and was found in the lower branches of the bigger tree. sites/default/files/carebears/image_16.jpg Pieces of the bark matched the ID Card. This tree also appeared to still be growing. We are happy because we found the white pine very quickly. During our study we saw two white pine trees together. We heard the leaves rustling in the wind. We could smell the sap from the trees. Our group we surprised that we did find more pine cones on the tree.
species-cornus-sericea-was-found-hairy-maple-leaves-2014-11-19 The Hairy Maple Leaves Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Redtwig dogwood Cornus sericea I think I found it Native sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image_0.jpg sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image_11.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/cornus_sericea.jpg sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image_8.jpg We think that might be red twig dogwood. We thinks this because of the color of the stem. sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image_9.jpg The stem of the red twig dogwood is one half inch thick. sites/default/files/the_hairy_maple_leaves/image_10.jpg This shows what we think is the redtwig dogwood. We happy because we got to get out of school to do this. The problem that we ran into was that we couldn't find the tree. We did see a lot of trees, we can hear kids laughing, and can smell fresh air. We are surprised that we didn't find it because we thought we would find some.
species-tsuga-canadensis-was-not-found-cuttlefish-2014-11-19 Cuttlefish Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 Eastern hemlock Tsuga canadensis I think I did not find it Native sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image_7.jpg sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image_9.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/703.jpg sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image_10.jpg There are no trees in our quadrat. sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image_11.jpg There is only a dead bush and leaves. sites/default/files/cuttlefish/image_12.jpg None of the organisms in our quadrat had needles. We could hear the trees rustling in the wind. It was very sunny and very cold. We saw a lot of dead trees and other dead plants. I am a little bit surprised that we did not find it, I thought that we would find at least one Eastern Hemlock.
species-pinus-strobus-was-found-jjns-2014-11-19 JJNS Raymond, ME 2014-11-19 15:00:00 White pine Pinus strobus I think I found it Native sites/default/files/jjns/image_1.jpg sites/default/files/jjns/image_14.jpg JSMS School Yard and Nature Trail sites/default/files/species_photos/700.jpg sites/default/files/jjns/image_11.jpg We believe its a white pine. The bark looks the same. It's greyish green. sites/default/files/jjns/image_12.jpg The pine needles at the top are white pine needles. sites/default/files/jjns/image_13.jpg It has seasonal changes because their is little to no needles left on the tree. I am happy because we found the tree easily. I see a tree. I smell nothing. I hear the crunching of dead leaves.
species-matsucoccus-matsumurae-was-not-found-team-chair-2014-11-18 Team chair Hampden Maine 2014-11-18 18:36:00 Red pine scale Matsucoccus matsumurae I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/team_chair/img_0159.jpg sites/default/files/team_chair/img_0159_1.jpg RSU22 Hampden Me.

My class, Mrs. O'brein and all went outside to look for red pine trees. We found one red pine tree(RPT) in front of our school. We found one jack pine and twelve white pine trees in the process. After that we all went back inside to put more clothes on. Then we headed back out side to look for more. We found six more RPT. Four RPT are near/on the playground which has fence around it. One RPT is on the outside of the fence. Three more are near the swing set all line in a row.Two more are near the McGraw school. My class is happy because we did found red pine trees.

It had tiny pine cones. Like hemlock. sites/default/files/54jb21s/image_3.jpg It was not have white whool. It had white racing stripes on the bottom of the needles. Like hemlock. sites/default/files/54jb21s/image_4.jpg It did not have white whool. It had odd bark like hemlock. The day we went out was on November 14, 2014 it was 45 degrees out and the wind was not blowing it was sunney. We found hemlock with our group. We know it was hemlock because it was small and the needles had white racing stripes. Also the bark was brown/grey and it was cracked.
species-tsuga-canadensis-was-found-44jf9s-2014-11-17 44jf9s E. Waterboro 2014-11-17 15:02:00 Eastern hemlock Tsuga canadensis I think I found it Native sites/default/files/44jf9s/image.jpg sites/default/files/44jf9s/image_7.jpg red pine/pitch pine and hemlock/balsam fir on campus sites/default/files/species_photos/703.jpg sites/default/files/44jf9s/image_9.jpg This picture shows a suspicious looking tree's needles. These needles are just like those needles of a hemlock tree, which makes it likely that this is an eastern hemlock tree. These don't seem to be confused with any plant, due to their small nature, so finding this should be very easy. Notice the greenish color. This makes it even easier to find this. sites/default/files/44jf9s/image_8.jpg This bark is very similar, if not identical to, that bark of a hemlock tree. This means that it is even more likely this is probably a hemlock tree! This looks very similar to red pine bark, but if it has more of a darker, grayer shade to it, rather than a reddish shade, it is probably a hemlock tree. sites/default/files/44jf9s/image_6.jpg Finally, this close-up shot of some different needles on the same tree show that these pines have the same two white lines that every hemlock needle has. This can definitely prove that this is a hemlock tree! This whiteness on the back of the needles are pretty unique. Very little needles have this distinctive feature, which is why this is very easy to identify. The observation that we had in concern of hemlock trees and hemlock woolly adelgid occured in only one day, for we only observed our study site FOR one day. After preparing our supplies and journals for the journey, we walked outside, took a last-second preparation test, and we finally went to our study site, which was just barely in the school campus. During our search, we had the help of our science teacher, Mr. Parent, and a real scientist, Ms. Bien, to further identify which trees are the trees we were looking for. It took a while, but we eventually spotted a tree that we really suspected was a hemlock tree. We studied it, and after lots of observations, we decided it was actually hemlock. We also noticed that there was no signs of hemlock woolly adelgid, an invasive cotton-type thing that grows on hemlock trees, and that means our study site has not hemlock woolly adelgid! After taking evidence photos to make sure this was it, we finally headed back to the science classroom, where we were further instructed...

The entire branch seems totally fine, with nothing suspicious on it whatsoever. sites/default/files/44jf9s/image_1.jpg This photo shows a sample of the needles on the same hemlock tree. Like the bark, this has nothing suspicious on or near it. No bugs, no white stuff, no nothing! sites/default/files/44jf9s/image_2.jpg Finally, this photo shows a view of most of the tree. Like the previous two pictures, there is STILL no hemlock woolly adelgid, or any bugs that may mean there is. The observation that we had in concern of hemlock trees and hemlock woolly adelgid occured in only one day, for we only observed our study site FOR one day.

This tree, and you can see, has redish bark also. This leads me to believe that this tree is, in fact, red pine. sites/default/files/64sc41s/image_5.jpg Another feature that can be found on red pine is the clusters of two. The needles are grouped in two on one cluster. Also, the needles are longer then, say, a pitch pines needles. They are also spaced out a bit. Considering this, we have concluded that it is red pine. We are trying to get people to find red pine and are starting with our school, so we went out on a drizzly day and found red pine along a path through the woods. We know it's red pine because it has the flaky reddish bark with two needles in a bunch.

Eastern Hemlock has 2 white racing stripes on the underside. Hemlock has needles year round.Older bark is brownish, scaly, and black. Look for flowers in the spring. Male flowers are small and yellow. Female flowers are small green cones, which develope into small brown cones. sites/default/files/44wf7s/image_11.jpg The bark is scaly and has a grayish brown color. This is commonly found on the eastern hemlock tree. sites/default/files/44wf7s/image_14.jpg The needles of eastern hemlock are green and have two white racing strips on the underside of the needles. And the needles are 1.5-2 cc long. We are looking for Eastern Hemlock. We did end up finding it when we searched the MMS campus. Why we are looking for eastern hemlock is because of the hemlock wooly adelgid we want to know were hemlock wooly adelgid is and were starting with our school campus.

The needles are flat, and tapering. On 11/13/14 we went outside to look for Helmlock on Massabesic ground. We found a Hemlock grove. On the west side of the school. It was sunny and it was 55 degrees out.

I know it is hemlock because the needles were very short and they are also attached to the branches by a little stem or twig. Also, the tree had pine cones on it. sites/default/files/44as14s/image_1.jpg tjere was little pine cones on the tree and that proves that this is hemlock. sites/default/files/44as14s/image_2.jpg Another characteristic of a hemlock tree is the needles have white stripe on the back of them. The needles are also opposite each other. Also the tree looked healthy and there was no white on the tree. We were looking for Hemlock and Hemlock Wolly Adelgid. We did find Hemlock but failed to find the Adelgid. In some ways it's good that we didn't find the Adelgid because it could spread to other trees.

The bark was a little bit red but mostly greyish. The needles were long, they were bundled up, and they were all over the branches. sites/default/files/74cg68s/image_3.jpg The Red Pine I found was tall and there were other Red Pines near and next to it. There was also Pitch Pines in the area I found Red Pine. I found Red Pine in a forest like area with other trees besides Red Pine. sites/default/files/74cg68s/image_4.jpg I think I found Red Pine because there was around 4 to 5 Red Pines in the area I found it in. Red Pine will spread to another spot in that area if any other plant dies. I found Red Pine on our campus at Massabesic middle school. It had red bark and long needles. It was tall and there were other Red Pines next to the one I looked at. There was a couple Pitch Pines near the Red Pine I found. It was in a forest like area and there were other trees besides Red Pine in that location. We are looking for Red Pine because it can spread if other plants die which means there would be Red Pine all over the area it is in.

The needle is very short with an opposite arrangement pattern. sites/default/files/firebug/dscf1154.jpg Looking at the underside of the branches I noted a white tuft that had attached itself to the underneath. sites/default/files/firebug/dscf1158.jpg It was also noted that there was white residue on other needles on this tree consistent with the white tuft located on the underside of the first branch. At approximately 1:15pm on November 14, 2014 I accompanied the students from the science class I work with to identify Eastern Hemlock and Red Pine. Upon reaching the study site I broke off from the group for a moment and investigated a tree that I had previously investigated before to look for any changes. As I was looking at the needles and branches I noted a white tuft on the underside of the needles. I continued to look and noted white residue on other needles consistent with this same white tuft. It was also noted on other branches in this tree as well as branches on another tree nearby. The temperature was approximately 46 degrees out, sunny, and a mild breeze blowing. Photo evidence was taken and a ribbon was placed around the tree for further observation and investigation.
