Straight Cut, One Cut, Two Cut, Which is the Best Christmas Tree Cut?

Student: Hughstin Grimshaw-Surette

District/Region: Tri-County District

Event: 2008 Canada-Wide Science Fair

Hughstin is a student at Maple Grove Education Center and his project, 'Straight Cut, One Cut, Two Cut, Which is the Best Christmas Tree Cut?' investigated different ways to cut a Christmas Tree.

This project compares three different cuts to the trunk of a Balsam Fir Christmas Tree. The intent was to see if multiple cuts to the trunk would affect the amount of water absorbed by the tree over a three-week period. The results proved that the tree with two extra cuts absorbed the most water, therefore staying the freshest and losing only 5g of needles.

At his Regional Science Fair, Hughstin won Second place in the Junior Division.

Congratulations, Hughstin!
