Abstract:
Because of the propensity of cypress trees (Taxodium distichum) to form false or incomplete annual rings, the use of their growth rings for impact analysis is limited. However, the error associated with reading growth rings can be estimated by comparing two cores from the same tree, and the error inherent in a single core can be reduced by averaging the growth estimate over 6-10 years.
