My name is Ragnar Robinson. I live in La Ronge, a small town in northern Saskatchewan. I am in grade 10 at Churchill Community High School. I competitively mountain bike race and cross country ski and I enjoy canoeing and dog sledding. I am the 2007 provincial mountain bike champion and the 2008/2009 provincial cross country ski champion. My future goal is to become a pro cyclist.

Is It Timber Time?
Region:Northern Saskatchewan
City:La Ronge, SK
School:Churchill Composite H.S.
Abstract:I studied the tree rings of white and black spruce to determine how fast those trees grow at different ages. I found that both species almost increase their growth rate until the end of their natural life spans. My findings support the selective logging of only the oldest trees in our forests, a practice that will reduce industry costs and maintain a healthy ecosystem.
