Help WSU track Madrone tree distribution

Pacific Madrone

"Pacific madrone stem(s) twist and lean, and its bark characteristically displays shades of orange, green, and red to cinnamon colors as it peels with age and sun exposure."

The Pacific madrone (Arbutus menziesii) is facing many challenges. A host of diseases threatens these unique trees.

In response, Washington State University (WSU) is conducting a crowd-sourced data collection effort to improve our understanding of the distribution and condition of our region's Madrones.

Using just your smartphone and a simple guide, you can help with these efforts.
