There is a old maidenhair tree near my home.
we need to know the tree’s age , but we can’t see the tree’s growth ring, because municipality prohibit the people cutting trees .
please tell me , what about reckon age of old tree?
Hi, everybody,today is my first time to here.
I don’t know a way of determining age without cutting it.
Counting age rings is the only way I think…
How about Carbon-dating? 8)
Good. As much as I remember, there are some radioactivity techniques too. But where to apply them? at your kitchen? 🙂
You don’t have to cut it down, is there a way to take like a sample by cutting a small piece out?
actually you may be on to something there mith. There is a technique known as ‘boring’ (i think) that involves making a hole in the tree.
here is a link for more info (thank google!)
Yeah, boring is a way.
you take a tiny crossection I dont know how you would do it though
But isn’t that’s quite impossible to do without harming the tree? 😕
You should look up ways on the internet. 🙂
