Age of Mulberry Tree

Hi Ed - How can you tell that the tree is about 100 years old and not, say, 200 or 300 years old? (We were discussing how old this tree is over lunch today)

about 10-15 years ago I took

about 10-15 years ago I took a tree core from this tree and measured how many rings there were. Surprisingly the rings were rather far apart completely different to what you might find in say a Yew where they are very close together. I had the core in my office for many years but with all the different moves it has got lost.
