Abstract

Dendrochronological investigations of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) growing on Männikjärve peatland in central Estonia showed that annual tree growth of peatland pines can be used as a proxy for past variations of water table levels. Reconstruction of past water table levels can help us to...

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

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 mortality of Scots pine trees in and around Helsinki has been reported in recent years, but the causalities of these deaths have not so far been rigorously examined. Tree-ring analyses have previously shown to effectively reveal historical growth variability and thus hint at the stress factors...

Abstract

Dendrochronological and sclerochronological records are mean series of arboreal and molluscan increments that are correctly aligned in time by rigorous dating. These records of tree rings and annual shell-growth increments exhibit climate signals that can be used to reconstruct fluctuations and...

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

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

Results are presented of a dendrochronological dating of the medieval St. Laurentius church in Nõo near Tartu, Estonia using 23 sample beams, 20 of which were pine [Pinus] and 3 were spruce [Picea]. It was established that the pine timbers used in the roof construction of the church were felled...

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.
