tree coring

We cored trees by drilling into them and then pulling the sample out of the tree. We stored the samples in straws and taped both ends so that the wood from the trees stayed stored safely. We also measured each tree to see if it was big enough for someone to cut down. If the tree was at least 16 units around 4.5 ft from the ground, it was big enough to cut. I learned about four different kinds of trees and I thought it was very interesting.
