Gavin...See the Journal of Arboriculture 25(1):18-23. 1999. Matheny et al. We were not able to obtain readings from Monterey cypress. The core broke as soon as the lever arm of the fractometer was placed on it. No reading was possible. If you need a copy of the article, let me know your address or fax number. Thanks. Best regards.
