Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research

The Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research is more than a place to study dendrochronology. We literally wrote the book on it! The dating and study of annual growth rings in trees was formalized as a scientific discipline here when the lab was established in 1937. Dendrochronology is very much an interdisciplinary science, with specific application in many different research areas. These include fire history and fire ecology, paleoclimatology, archaeology, biogeography, isotope geochemistry, paleoecology, biogeochemistry, geomorphology, numerical and statistical modeling, and even public health.
