I’m a forestry student living in Portland, OR, which is a fabulous location for all things tree and plant.

Plants of all sorts fascinate me, and I’m very interested in tree physiology, plant evolution and mycorrhizal associations. Six years of Latin study has given me a knack for taxonomy, and I’m getting pretty good at statistical interpretation and synthesis. However, this is not enough — I will not rest until I learn all the things!

This blog is intended to chronicle anything ranging from what I learn about plants to what I think about school. Book reviews and GIS projects and SAF chapters, oh my!

I really just hope that writing about my journey will be helpful to someone.

I do my best to generate my own media and/or find non-copyrighted work to incorporate here, but be advised that I am well within the bounds of the fair use doctrine even for other materials, and I’m happy to do my part to keep copyright law plastic.

    I am a science teacher in Seaside, Oregon. I liked your “How do Trees Get that Tall?” and am using it as a homework assignment for my seventh grade students following our work with plant cells and tissues. I would like to credit your work with a name – is that possible? Thanks.
