NWA Democrat-Gazette/FLIP PUTTHOFF
Noah Sanders, a student at the University of Arkansas, intentionally kills a large cedar tree using the technique of girdling, or ring barking. A ring of bark and wood around the tree is removed and the tree dies over time. The dead tree remains standing to become habitat for birds and other wildlife. Some large cedars were killed by girdling during the glade restoration project.
