Tree Slice

A slice of a tree that is over 150 years old reveals its rings

Go back in time as you count the tree rings on this five-foot diameter slice from a historic Elm tree. This tree began growing in nearby Hanover, New Hampshire in the early 1800s and was removed in 1998; this slice was preserved and given to the Montshire by Dartmouth College.
