TRS is offering a "Traveling Dendro Kit" for workshops and fieldweeks to provide all the basic needs for sampling and crossdating.  The TDK includes five increment borers, microscopes (ten optical plus a digital scope), battery-operated lights, sanding gear, straws, and more, in a hard-sided suitcase that weighs less than 22 kg (50 lbs) to meet most airline check-in baggage requirements. Please contact Peter Brown (pmb at rmtrr dot org) for more details about obtaining the TDK for use in your workshop or fieldweek.
