SECTION 01: A 'FRi'1 PRINK TO SIIOAA Hold TILE DATES 01: TIRES ARE ASCERTAINED FROM THE REMAINING SURVIVING TREES

Each fire which injures the tree leaves a permanent scar, and the date when it occurred can be determined, or at least very closely
approximated, by counting the number of annual rings between the scar and the outer circumference of the tree.
