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
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.
