  • Duncan, R.P. (1989). An evaluation of errors in tree age estimates based on increment cores in kahikatea (Dacrycarpus dacrydioides). New Zealand Natural Sciences 16: 31-37. Twelve kahikatea (Dacrycarpus dacrydioides) discs were used to assess the likely errors associated with estimating tree age from growth ring counts in increment cores. Two major sources of error were examined: (1) Failure of the increment core to pass through the tree's chronological centre. A geometric model is developed… CONTINUE READING
