IAWA Bulletin n.s., Vo!'1 (1-2), 1980 NON-DESTRUCTIVE WOOD SAMPLING METHODS FROM LIVING TREES: A LITERATURE SURVEY by J. P. J. Swart Department of Wood Science, University of Stellenbosch, South Africa The collecting of wood samples from living trees in South Africa is sometimes hampered by the fact that many localities are situated either in wilderness areas or nature reserves where trees may not be felled for sampling. These samples therefore have to be removed by means of non-destructive methods. A literature survey on applicable methods yielded the following: Anon. 1913. The Swedish increment borer. Amer. Forestry 19 (7): 492. Beers, W.L. & R.S. Boyd. 1963. A motor-driven cutter for extracting large breast-height wood samples. J. Forestry 61 (II): 865-866. Bowers, N.A. 1960. Research completed on power-driven tools for taking long coreborings. Tree-Ring Bul!. 23 (10): 10-13. Brown, A.G. 1958. The extraction of large wood samples from living trees. J. Forestry 56 (10): 764. Dadswell, H.E., J .M. Fielding, J .W.P. Nichols & A.G. Brown. 1961. Tree to tree variation and the gross herbitability of wood characteristics of Pinus radiata.
