Ivy Academy student Conner Phillips reads instructions for placing a dendrometer on a tree as Trent Walker looks on.

The Smithsonian Institution is collecting data from around the globe to see how climate change affects tree growth, and students at Ivy Academy in Soddy-Daisy are helping. 

They recently banded their first tree in the woods near the school grounds.
