This photo provides the back story to this. Dear friend Lowell Jantzi muscles an 8-inch increment borer into a white pine to collect some growth data for the Camp Deerpark management plan. We collected about 30 cores - and unfortunately chipped the bit in the process. All of our last cores had a funny little spiral swirl around them. [NOTE: This can be easily removed when the cores are sanded for measuring].
