Bark temperature

Last week I was out teaching the Science of Trees, and we had a great time tinkering with different ways of studying trees. Of the different tools I brought in to illustrate various adaptations of trees, my highlights was measuring the temperature of bark in trees using an infrared thermometer. While I should probably be writing this in December and not during the hottest point on our planet in the last 200 years (more on why next week), I thought I'd share the results anyways because it's just so cool (pun intended)!
