Abstract

Annual radial increment of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) was studied in 7 stands showing symptoms of decline in southern Estonia. Residual growth after removal of temperature and precipitation effects by multiple regression analysis showed a continuous reduction in ring width during recent decades.

Abstract

A geographical network of averaged series of tree ring widths in Estonia was developed, based on borer cores from timber of historical churches and other old buildings. The network consists of two subsets, based on spruce (Picea abies) and pine (Pinus sylvestris) samples, respectively. In spite of...

Abstract

Ring width studies were made on 851 sample trees of Pinus sylvestris in Estonia, and standard chronologies were produced (21-year running mean) for various site types and geographical locations covering the period from about 1800 to 1980. A generalized Estonian chronology was produced, and compared ...

Abstract

This study presents the results of a dendrochronological and dendroclimatological study of Scots pine growth on dry sites in Estonia and Finland. Increment cores from two regions in Estonia and from five regions in Finland are used. The cores were collected from living trees nearby permanent...

Abstract

The common growth signal and spatial synchrony of nine chronologies of tree rings (Pinus sylvestris L.) from the Baltic Sea region were studied using moving correlations with time windows of 50 and 100 years. Drifts from synchrony to asynchrony and again back to synchrony across several centuries...

Abstract

Relationships between climate and radial growth of Oxalis-Myrtillus-site type Norway spruce and Scots pine stands under different cement dust loads were investigated. Dendrochronological methods were used. Long-term alkaline (pH 13.2-12.7) dust pollution emitted over 40 years from a cement plant...

Abstract

The allegedly oldest preserved wooden house in Tartu, Estonia, was sampled for tree-ring dating. The so-called Uppsala House presumably originates from the Swedish period in Estonia before the Northern War in 1700-1721. The tree-ring curves of 31 spruce (Picea abies) cores and of 8 pine (Pinus...

Abstract

In order to build a tree-ring chronology for Estonia, as a dating tool and climatic proxy, we investigated whether the whole country can be considered to be dendrochronologically uniform. Seven sites with living pine (Pinus sylvestris) trees throughout the country were chosen, and the tree-ring...

Abstract

Dendrochronological techniques and correlation analysis were used to compare the radial growth of pines and to identify relationships between climatic variables and radial growth of trees at different slope positions of dunes. The two sites selected for this study are located in the region of dunes ...

Abstract

Relationships of the width of annual rings of 75- to 85-year-old Pinus sylvestris and Picea abies with average monthly temperature, amount of precipitation and a complex climatic indicator based on these variables was studied against the background of pollution load in the zone influenced by a...
