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

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...

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

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

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

Ring widths were determined on 851 sample trees of Pinus sylvestris from various regions and forest types in Estonia. Ring-width indices were obtained by the standard method (21-year sliding means), grouped according to forest type and geographical region. The governing factor for ring width was...

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 ...
