    Description

    In studies involving the measurement and subsequent remeasurement of trees, such as CFI plots or siliviculture research plots, the trees are commonly identified by metal tags fastened to the trees by means of nails. In 1957 a study was begun to determine whether this practice would lead to dregrade or scalable defect in the trees.
