Data Release: Buttonland Swamp, health survey, 2022

November 9, 2023

This dataset contains tree health information in 2022 for ten trees in Buttonland Swamp, part of the Cache River Watershed in Illinois. The data includes the height of the trees along with their crown ratio. This allows an understanding of the size and canopy health of Buttonland Swamp cypress trees. A Munsell color chart was utilized in determining leaf color. Leaf color tells whether the trees are healthy or if they are experiencing stress such as lack of nutrients, exposure to pesticides, or impoundment.
