The best result of image processing is depends on the fundamental steps, that is, to point out the true edges. Hence, it is very important to choose the edge detector, which fit best to the processing. This paper is a first step for analysing the rings in the tree ring image. In this paper we compare the various edge detection techniques towards the tree ring image and find out which fit best for further processing.
