We spent yesterday in the field, down in South Jersey, setting up some resin sampling. We attached tubes to both Loblolly and Pitch Pines after removing a small circle of the each tree’s phloem (loosely simulating an insect attack). This is an overly-dramatic compression of the day’s work.
Want to make whatever you’re doing seem a little more exciting than it actually is? Try setting it to a Devotchka song (really great band – http://devotchka.net/)
– Music is Twenty-Six Temptations by Devotchka, with the beginning and end of the song overlapping in the middle.
