Popular Science: Tree-rings – a live chronicle of forest management

While watching nature programmes on TV we can often see documentaries about tropical seas and rainforests. Now, however, we are going to search an environment that is much closer to us. Why should we be interested only in native ecosystems, which form only a small percentage of forests nowadays?
