The White Cedars that grow along the Niagara Escarpment are often twisted and bent due to changes in the rocks that support them. Shifts in the rock show up in the trees' inner rings because the heart or core of the tree is no longer centered. Scientists can thus determine how old the tree was when the shifting occurred. This helps them approximate the timing and rate of rock falls and wear on the escarpment face.
