How do you take core samples from trees? Is it a long and difficult process? I was just wondering. In class, I think you said you were going to sample at least 10 trees. How many of those trees will be of the same type of tree? Above you said that you were going to compare growth between tree types. What type of trees are you going to sample? Where are the trees you plan to sample? Will they be in the same area? In class, you said that taking core samples would not hurt the tree. That's good! :-)
