"An important limitation In the study of tree roots has traditionally been the time necessary to excavate roots without injuring their fine structure. Thus, many root studies have been based on small samples and consequently contain large errors of estimation. This Note describes how large numbers of root systems from sapling-sized trees can be excavated rapidly and with minimum injury by placing patterned charges of high explosive in the soil."--P. .
