Tree-ring dating, known also as dendrochronology, has a variety of applications. This website offers a gallery of photos of trees and their rings. Some were used specifically in tree-ring research. Author Dr. Henri D. Grissino-Mayer's goal is to make available as much information about dendrochronology on the Internet, from the basics of tree-ring dating, to educational resources, to products and supplies, to software and databases, and more! His mission was born from an overwhelming need among dendrochronologists for a permanent repository of information that was free to the public, easily understandable, and as comprehensive as humanly possible.
The website is a wonderful resources for Arbor Day/Month activities (April/May) with its list of conferences and events, books and other resources.
