Hello everyone! Welcome to my fifth and final blog post!
My summer at the Arboretum has been a long and rewarding journey. I have learned so much about tree science and the process of research, both topics that I was not familiar with when I started this fellowship.
I am incredibly grateful to The Morton Arboretum Center for Tree Science and Morton Salt, Inc. for their support and funding.
Special thanks to my mentors: Dr. Chuck Cannon, Lane Scher, Stephanie Adams, and Chai-Shian Kua; as well as to Christine Carrier and Dr. Silvia Alvarez-Clare; Dr. Meghan Midgley, Michelle Catania, and the Soil Science lab; Marlene Hahn, Emma Spence, and the Herbarium lab; and my fellow URFs for their advice and assistance with my project.
Thank you to everyone who has followed this blog! It’s been a privilege to share my experience with you.
Enjoy these pictures that were taken throughout my time here.
