Abstract

Historical timbers have been sampled from buildings at 13 sites in Willsboro, New York, on the west shore of Lake Champlain. Ring-width series from 139 timbers have been successfully crossdated and used to develop tree-ring chronologies for ash (Fraxinus spp.), oak (Quercus spp.), pine (Pinus...

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We used historical documents, stand mapping, and new methods of dendrochronological analysis to reconstruct 250 y of land-use history of the Simes Tract in Petersham, MA.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

The need to understand lake level variability in the Great Lakes is underscored by record low stands in 2012 followed by a quick shift back to the historic averages by 2014 in the Michigan-Huron basins. These rapid changes have important implications for near-shore ecology, sedimentology, water...

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

The pace and magnitude of long-term change in the forests of eastern North America is poorly understood. The current study examines the developmental history of primary Tsuga canadensis stands in central Massachusetts from before European settlement to the present. Through an integrated...

Abstract

The temporal variation in species recruitment was examined in relation to annual dendrochronological data to determine the historical development and disturbance history of an old-growth bottomland hemlock-hardwood forest in the Cook Forest State Park in North-western Pennsylvania. This 15 ha...

Abstract

Tree-ring data were used to define regional tree-growth anomalies (i.e. recurring spatial patterns of growth that differ from long-term averages) for 11 species (Tsuga canadensis, Pinus strobus, P. resinosa, Quercus rubra, Q. alba, Acer saccharum, Betula alleghaniensis, B. papyrifera, Fagus...

Abstract

This study was based on five species: Pinus rigida, Pinus strobus, Quercus alba, Quercus prinus, and Tsuga canadensis. Six single species tree-ring chronologies were constructed for the period 1964-1972 by combining 30-40 ring-width series from several sites. Palmer drought severity indices (PDSI)...
