International Tree-Ring Databank
The ITRDB is a repository for tree-ring data and climate reconstructions from around the world.
  The International Tree-Ring Data Bank also maintains an email forum that covers all aspects of tree-ring research, the ITRDB Forum.  To subscribe, send a one line message "subscribe itrdbfor" to listserv@listserv.arizona.edu.

Digital Collaboratory for Cultural Dendrochronology (DCCD)
The DCCD is a digital repository and interactive library of tree-ring data. Its content is developed through research of, among others: archaeological sites (including old landscapes), ship wrecks, buildings, furniture, paintings, sculptures and musical instruments. The DCCD is based on the Tree-Ring Data Standard (TRiDaS) and allows for conversion of other widely-used data formats. It contains digital tree-ring measurement series and average chronologies, as well as their descriptive and interpretative metadata.

Dendrochronologia is an international scholarly journal in tree-ring research.  It publishes high-quality original research dealing with growth rings of woody plants and the application of tree-ring studies to problems in a wide variety of fields including, but not limited to, archaeology, botany, climatology, ecology, forestry, geology and hydrology.

Association for Tree-Ring Research 
The Association of Tree-Ring Research is aimed to research groups and individual scientists working in Europe, but also, of course, for everyone interested in tree-ring research.

North American Dendroecological Fieldweek
The NADEF is a workweek in applied dendrochronology held every summer at different locations around North America. 
Participants range from new initiates in the field to seasoned veterans with over 20 years or longer of experience.

Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research
Maintains numerous data sets and images, including the Bibliography of Dendrochronology listing over 11,000 references in tree-ring research, and the Multilingual Glossary of Dendrochronology that provides definitions and translations for 351 terms in 6 languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese (+ Russian in the printed version).

International Multiproxy Paleofire Database (IMPD)
A database of both tree-ring and sediment charcoal based fire history data.

OLDLIST and OLDLIST East are two databases of ages for the oldest known trees of different species, the first more general and the second mainly for the east coast of North America.

Canadian Dendrochronology Research Group - CanDendro - maintains numerous details on tree-ring research in Canada.
