Dating using tree rings

So to dendrochronological www pages of Social of SocialUniversity Helsinki. Bang it is not always significant to date timbers which at first casual Dating using tree rings to be suitable, i. The dendrochronologist would love to have end-grain cross-sections of reasons to see any needs around the purpose, avoid knots etc. Weddings, pests, diseases etc. He has open in New Zealand, Ireland and Newfoundland, but most of his couple has much couple historic timbers and studying content rings in living trees in lunatic Britain and sometimes-west France.

Dendrochronology in Britain For a long time it was assumed that the complex maritime climate experienced in Britain would mean that we would rihgs have these clear-cut patterns tree that dating would not be possible. Indeed, a group of German dendrochronologists looked at several grand oak structures and declared in the early s that any similar dating work in Britain would require an awful lot ising work. Happily, since then a number of dendrochronologists have been working away establishing the patterns of growth for oak trees covering many centuries, indeed millennia, in various Dating using tree rings of the British Isles.

Starting with living oaks to give the exact dates to the outer years, one can overlap the outer rings of trees felled earlier, say in Victorian times, with the inner rings of the living trees to produce a continuous chronology going back perhaps three centuries or more. Similarly, using progressively older sources of timber, the chronology becomes established. When a new, undated oak sample is found, the ring-width pattern is measured and compared with the extensive database to see if its distinctive pattern closely matches the patterns derived from dated series.

From what has been said above, hopefully it is clear that the chances of dating a single series is going to be quite small. Any given tree will have superimposed on the basic climate response its own particular life story. If several contemporaneous timbers are looked at however, say a dozen timbers all from the same phase of building, it is often possible to match the patterns within the group of timbers and then derive a mean pattern of growth. This has often been likened to a radio signal - one sample gives a 'noisy' signal, difficult to distinguish, but several samples reinforce the underlying signal making it clearer to read.

Tree-Ring Dating (Dendrochronology)

Of course, if a single woodland has uwing used as the source of constructional timbers, and all the trees in that wood uslng experienced similar management regimes, or all been subjected to insect defoliation, trer or similar Dating using tree rings disturbance, then the trees may not show Daring typical regional growth trends, and may not match any other site. Thus it is not always possible to date timbers Datimg at first sight appear to be suitable, i. Size of timber is not a particularly good guide to the age of a tree - and hence trer number of rings in a timber, and there is some variation across Dating using tree rings country.

A ttee ceiling beam in East Anglia may only contain rings, whereas the same aDting beam in the Welsh borderlands might contain rings. Small rafters or studs may contain more rings than larger structural beams - it all depends teee the conditions the tree was growing in. Most dendrochronologists like to have a minimum of 50 rings before attempting to find a unique match. Here the fingerprint analogy is useful again - a partial 'dab' may share several characteristics with a suspect's full fingerprint, but in order to convict the suspect a minimum number of points of coincidence must be found. With tree rings, one may get statistical matches between series, but unless there are a good number of rings available, and the result can be replicated against several independent datasets, the dendrochronologist will not consider the match to be good enough to ascribe it a date.

Therefore, with tree rings one should either get a reliable date, or nothing at all! There is no vague indication, like 'it is probably fifteenth century', one can either place the series to a particular run of calendar years, or one can't. Many building historians can give a reasonably accurate date range for a building based on the style of carpentry employed - some features are characteristic of just a few decades in a particular century, although many were employed for long periods and it may only be possible to give quite wide date ranges. Many of these dates have been independently tested using dendrochronology, and found to be quite reliable.

There is a danger here of circularity however, dating on stylistic grounds alone can be way out on odd occasions, often by more than a century! What is involved in getting a dendro-date? The preference for multiple contemporaneous samples has been explained above. Whilst it may be possible to date a single timber, two things have to be kept in mind - firstly, the chances of getting a date are far higher if multiple timbers are used, and secondly, how meaningful is the date for a single timber?

It may be a timber that is re-used, or had been stored before use, or it may be an undetected repair. If several timbers give dates within a few years of each other, one can have far more confidence that the whole structure Dating using tree rings been securely dated. Then of course there is the question of the use of re-used timbers - these are usually apparent because of mortices and peg holes etc. It is rare for a large batch of timbers to be re-used as the only construction timbers, so multiple samples should pick up the different ages, but of course salvaged timbers have always been a valuable commodity, and dendrochronology can only date when the tree was growing. The dendrochronologist would Dating using tree rings to have end-grain cross-sections of timbers to see any abnormalities around the tree, avoid knots etc.

Of course this is rarely possible in building timbers, unless ends are being sawn off in repair work etc. More commonly, the dendrochronologist will want to take cores down the radius of what was the tree. This may mean going in at odd angles - and they will also want to core through sapwood remains as this ensures that one has reached the outermost rings of the tree. If no sapwood is available at all, it may be possible to date the ring-width series, but these will only give an end date after which the trees were felled.

Most British dendrochronologists use 16mm diameter coring bits, leaving a hole about the size or slightly smaller than most peg holes. The holes may be left open, or plugged with a dowel, and the plug itself may be left clearly visible or disguised to be almost invisible. There are several arguments for and against each of these possibilities - these need to be discussed with regard to each study. What should I do if I want to get my house dated? The first thing to do is to take a look around for yourself. Whilst most timber-framed buildings are of oak, there is a lot elm and other species used. Sadly at present it is only oak that can be dated in most instances - although imported conifers may also be possible to date.

Climatic and environmental factors influence the growth of tree-rings from inter-annual to millennial time-scales. This creates possibility to date the past climatic and environmental events with highest possible precision of all geological records! Current tree-ring oriented research at the Department of Geology includes wide spectrum of dendrochronological science. The study of subfossil tree-rings has for long been the speciality of the research group. Scots pine Pinus sylvestris L. Additional tree-ring material can be obtained from historical buildings. Theory of cross-dating is a key to built composite chronologies from living, historical and subfossil tree-rings. Megafossil collection from northernmost Lapland covers the past 76 centuries being one of the longest continuous tree-ring chronologies in the world.

At the same time, this chronology is probably the longest absolutely dated and annually resolved temperature proxy record. The basis of our dendrochronological research is the compound interpretation of living tree and subfossil tree-rings, their variability and factors behind their behaviour.
