Sunday Walk in Stanmer Park – 2017

It was a beautiful day. The rays of sun that crossed the leaves and branches of the trees, left the forest illuminated in harmonious tones and emphasizing thus the first spring flowers.

We didn’t need to go very far to learn about nature. It was our first starting point from Stanmer House where Francisco and me looked with open eyes an enormous tree called Cedar Lebanon (Cedrus Libani). Lebanon is a species of cedar native to the mountains of the Eastern Mediterranean. We also saw few pine cones lying on the floor around the tree.

Tony showed us how to measure the height of the tree using Tony’s height, pencil, steps and multiplication. We calculated that the average tree was about 120 fts approximately.
