Abstract

We used historical documents, stand mapping, and new methods of dendrochronological analysis to reconstruct 250 y of land-use history of the Simes Tract in Petersham, MA. These data were then used to interpret the origin of the current forest's stand structure within the experimental plots of the...

Abstract

In 1924, Bob Marshall and his Harvard University advisor Richard Fisher developed an integrated historical approach for forest reconstruction to address ecological questions and provide insights to forest management. Their approach utilized complementary methods and data: dendrochronology, diverse...

Abstract

The detection of release events in the annual growth increments of trees has become a central and widely applied method for reconstructing the disturbance history of forests. While numerous approaches have been developed for identifying release events, the preponderance of these methods relies on...

Abstract

Identifying releases from suppression represents one of the most fundamental dendroecological procedures for quantifying forest disturbance histories. In this study we evaluate boundary-line release criteria, which incorporates the effects of growth history on release response. In eastern hemlock (...

Abstract

Dendroecological techniques were used to examine the patterns of canopy recruitment in relation to disturbance history for 2 dominant but ecologically contrasting species, Pinus strobus (white pine, disturbance dependent) and Tsuga canadensis (hemlock, late successional), in a 300-yr-old primary...

Abstract

A surprising similarity was observed in growth fluctuations of White Pine (Pinus strobus) and Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) grown in a Connecticut swamp and the same species grown in upland situations in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Attempts to correlate the growth fluctuations of the swamp-grown...
