I'm going to do research in the tropics and am considering using tree cores for part of my analysis. However, for my planning:
How long does it take on average to extract a tree core of a tree with dbh ~50 cm? Trees will vary in wood density between 0.2 and 0.8.
The time includes labelling and storing in a bag, etc.
Tools: increment haglof borer. So I won't take a whole cross section, rather a small core of ~5 mm diameter that goes until the core.
And no picture because I need a more high quality image to be able to do my analysis.
