This topic submitted by Eric W, Rachel N, Laura S., Erin W, Eric C ( at 6:44 pm on 9/7/00. Additions were last made on Wednesday, May 7, 2014. Section: Smith

We propose to take core samples from trees. We will learn how to proparly use the coring device. We will count the rings and measure annual growth. We will then compare these figures to average temperature, rain fall, and other natural phenomenon from the past few years to see what effect these had on the tree growth. We expect that the warmest, wetest years will correspond with the most growth. We will also compare growth between tree types.
