Description:
This category is to find and document all Tree Growth Ring Displays. These are often found along trails,in Nature Centers, Visitor's Centers, or museums and are often used as teaching aids or part of an educational display.
Expanded Description:
Dendrochronology (Wikipedia and Bristlecone History) is the dating of past events (climatic changes) through study of tree ring growth. Botanists, foresters and archaeologists began using this technique during the early part of the 20th century. Discovered by A.E. Douglass from the University of Arizona, who noted that the wide rings of certain species of trees were produced during wet years and, inversely, narrow rings during dry seasons. Each year a tree adds a layer of wood to its trunk and branches thus creating the annual rings we see when viewing a cross section. For more information on dendrochronology, please visit Henri D. Grissino-Mayer's Ultimate Tree-Ring Web Page

This category is to find and document all Tree Growth Ring Displays. These are often found along trails, in Nature Centers, Visitor's Centers, and are often used as teaching aids or part of an educational display. This category will not accept plain tree trunks or large trees that have fallen, unless there is a plaque or other documentation used for dendrochronology.

Good Tree Ring Display Examples are:
Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park
Shepherd Nature Trail, Duke Forest
Cook Forest State Park
Big Basin Redwoods State Park
Ohio Governor's Mansion
New Zealand Rimu
Muir Woods

Note: If your Exceptional Tree Growth Ring Display goes missing in the real world, do not archive your waymark! Please just adjust the description to reflect that the tree is no longer there. Your waymark may be the only lasting documentation that it existed at all.
