Found through a science called dendrochronology these natural archives Tell of droughts insect infestations Forest fires Ero Sion and More according to Wood Magazine. Without the Benefit of a history Book Richard Phipps a researcher with the. Geological Survey in Urbana hi., knows for certain that Virginia s Tappahannock River nearly ran dry that unseasonably hot Spring when Gen. Thomas Stone Wall Jackson marched army North. Also can confirm that rain finally came the following sep tember when the Confederate army wallowed in mud on their Retreat. 2 or. Phipps in t a civil War Buff Content with historical journals though. He s a botanist working in a i2ghly specialized Field. And by using special Boring tool he literally extracts such data from Trees. Forester Paul Emusic measures the Fate of soil erosion on hiking trails in new Hampshire s White mountains for the Forest service. For this and numerous other tasks he too relies of Trees. Both men work in dendrochronology the science of sating events and environmental changes in history through the study of a tree s annual growth rings. But their work represents Only two aspects of All the Many things that tree rings can Tell history locked in the rings Trees in temperate regions undergo an annual Cycle composed of a growth period the Spring and summer and a dormant explains or. Phipps. Usually in the Early part of the growing season growth is rapid resulting in Large thin walled cells called Earl Wood. Later in the season growth slows Down and Small dark thick walled cells develop. This is Lakewood. And the Sharp contrast Between Earl Wood and Lakewood becomes a distinct line. When you look at a tree in Cross Section such As the top of a he continues the line looks like a Circle. That s the Boundary Between two annual growth increments or the because various environmental factors such As drought or insect infestation can affect the amount of food a tree produces for new Wood the size of the annual ring is related to the growing conditions of that he notes. Stumps and Cross sectional slabs vividly display a tree s annual rings and have been used by dendrochronology its since the science s infancy around the turn of the Century. Today though researchers prefer to take Core samples of Trees because such a wound quickly heals. Dendrochronology came to the forefront around the turn of the Cen Tury. It was the publicity associated with a famous criminal trial though that showered the study of tree rings with limelight. The usefulness in the regularity of tree ring patterns was brought to Light in the Lindbergh kidnapping Case in the says or. Krusic.

Krusic enjoys a Little investigating with tree rings too. He probes the Countryside pinpointing the construction dates of centuries old Homes and barns. It s called Cross dating. The idea is to recognize replicated patterns in tree rings and identify the years when they were formed. These become he says. Cross dating is finding matches for these signatures in different wooden artefacts such As a building. In 100 years of tree or. Krusic said continued you might have three or four such definitive signatures. When you find one of those signatures say the one for 1850 1855, you count Back the number of years to where you expect to find the next signature and if you locate it then you know that you have a time match. It s a detective Type of new clues through tree rings the same clue seeking with tree rings has resulted in the rewriting of history books. It was the tree rings of ancient bristle one Pines for instance that helped archaeologists accurately Date the construction of Pueblos in Arizona and new Mexico. In Europe tree ring experts have traced the origins of buildings and artefacts Back As far As 193. Even paintings on Wood carvings and musical instruments can be authenticated by finding tree ring chronologies. Scientists also rely on tree rings to Date past volcanic eruptions and earthquakes in order to predict their reoccurrence.
