- ... Increment coring is a standard method to obtain growth history information stored in trees. Although the method is invasive, the long-term effects on tree decay are largely unknown. Here we assess a possible side-effect of scientific research, i.e., coring-induced stemwood decay, using the high-resolution imaging technique of sonic and electric resistivity tomography. To this end, we use data from ...
