Dendrochronology or tree-ring dating is the scientific method of dating tree rings also called growth rings to the exact year they were formed. As well as dating them this can give data for dendroclimatology , the study of climate and atmospheric conditions during different periods in history from wood. Dendrochronology is useful for determining the precise age of samples, especially those that are too recent for radiocarbon dating , which always produces a range rather than an exact date. However, for a precise date of the death of the tree a full sample to the edge is needed, which most trimmed timber will not provide. It also gives data on the timing of events and rates of change in the environment most prominently climate and also in wood found in archaeology or works of art and architecture, such as old panel paintings.
To determine the absolute age of wood and organic artifacts. Method A scientific date is either absolute specific to one point in time or relative younger or older than something else. Dendrochronology, or tree-ring dating, provides absolute dates in two different ways: directly, and by calibrating radiocarbon results. Direct Dating of Wood Cross-dating determines the age of undated wood by directly matching ring patterns with trees of known age. Greatly simplified, the process samples living and dead trees in a given area.
