It is in general a difficult task to calculate the genus of a wild tower. In this paper, we present a method for calculating the genus of certain ArtinSchreier towers. As an illustration of our method, we obtain a very simple and unified proof for the limits of some towers that attain the DrinfeldVlăduţ bound or the Zink bound.
