The Tree-Ring Society is an international scientific association dedicated to tree-ring research and education. Goals of the Society are:
  • To promote tree-ring research to the global scientific community
  • To facilitate organization of symposia, conferences, and workshops on all aspects of tree-ring research
  • To publish results of tree-ring studies
  • To disseminate knowledge of tree-ring research to other disciplines and to the public
  • To provide a forum for communication for dendrochronologists from around the world

as well as relative methods like soil weathering and Schmidt-hammer technique.


NEW! EuroDendro2014, 8 to 11 September 2014, Lugo, Spain. Details and webpage will be coming soon.


And be sure to join The Tree-Ring Times, a Facebook forum dedicated to disseminating and discussing information, news items, and recent activities and advances in the tree-ring sciences.


High resolution versions of past issues of Tree-Ring Bulletin and Tree-Ring Research from Volume 1 (1934-35) to Volume 62 (2006) are available from the University of Arizona.

TRS is offering a "Traveling Dendro Kit" for workshops and fieldweeks to provide all the basic needs for sampling and crossdating.  The TDK includes five increment borers, microscopes (ten optical plus a digital scope), battery-operated lights, sanding gear, straws, and more, in a hard-sided suitcase that weighs less than ~22 kg (~50 lbs) to meet most airline check-in baggage requirements. Please contact Peter Brown (pmb at rmtrr dot org) for more details about obtaining the TDK for use in your workshop or fieldweek.
