How many trees have I measured?


While I was procrastinating I decided to look up how many trees I have measured during my time doing ecology. Specifically I wanted to know how many trees I had hugged while measuring their trunk diameter with a DBH tape. So I sifted through my old spreadsheets and added up the numbers, it wasn’t that difficult, really.

So below is a table of all the trees I’ve measured, separated by country:

Country Trees measured
Angola (2018) 2252
Republic of Congo (2017) 2161
Brazil (2016) 189
Peru (2015) 1093
Total 5695

I think 5695 trees is quite a lot! I’ll have to take a picture with the 6000th tree.
