A lightweight, portable device for extracting stuck or broken increment borers is presented and its operation described. The “Decorum” extractor is compact and weighs less than 400 g. It is easily carried in a belt pouch or pocket and is both reliable and easy to operate. The extractor does not require fixed tie points nor does it damage the tree. It offers an effective solution to a widely occurring problem in dendrochronology and forest research.
