At the facility in Peebles, Ohio, GE Aerospace has established a nature walk for visitors that has just opened.

As an educational resource for local students, this story walk features some amazing facts about trees!

And, 8 Billion Trees was delighted to help with providing tree species identification charts for the GE Aerospace facility, to help students recognize and identify the trees along the trail.

But, we didn’t stop there.

These identification charts are carefully placed to showcase the types of trees on the trail, allowing students to get a first hand appreciation for them.

Because oftentimes, a book or chart can only provide a glimpse of the real thing, a physical impression can go a long way toward helping student retain the knowledge they are given.

So, to enhance the learning experience, our graphics team went the extra mile.

Downloadable Resources for Educators

As part of our many free educational options for educators and students, we’ve created matching worksheets and coloring pages for each tree species featured on the nature trail.

These worksheets match the identification charts exactly, for continuity.
