Trees in arctic, sub-arctic and alpine regions respond differently depending on how old the tree is—older trees have reduced water efficiency which results in a reduced response to temperature changes. Tree-ring dating was one of the first absolute dating methods developed for archaeology, and it was invented by astronomer Andrew Ellicott Douglass and archaeologist Clark Wissler in the first decades of the 20th century.
Douglass was mostly interested in the history of climatic variations exhibited in tree rings; it was Wissler who suggested using the technique to identify when adobe pueblos of the American southwest were built, and their joint work culminated in research at the Ancestral Pueblo town of Showlow, near the modern town of Showlow, Arizona, in Archaeologist Neil M. Judd is credited with convincing the National Geographic Society to establish the First Beam Expedition , in which log sections from occupied pueblos, mission churches and prehistoric ruins from the American southwest were collected and recorded alongside those from living ponderosa pine trees.
The ring widths were matched and cross-dated, and by the s, chronologies were built back nearly years.
The first ruin tied to a specific calendar date was Kawaikuh in the Jeddito area, built in the 15th century; charcoal from Kawaikuh was the first charcoal used in the later radiocarbon studies. In , Showlow was being excavated by Lyndon L.
Hargrave and Emil W. Haury , and dendrochronology conducted on Showlow eventuated the first single chronology for the southwest, extending over a period of over 1, years. The Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research was established by Douglass at the University of Arizona in , and it is still conducting research today. Over the past hundred years or so, tree ring sequences have been built for various species all over the world, with such long date strings as a 12,year sequence in central Europe completed on oak trees by the Hohenheim Laboratory, and an 8, year-long bristlecone pine sequence in California.
Building a chronology of climate change in a region today was first simply a matter of matching overlapping tree ring patterns in older and older trees; but such efforts are no longer based solely on tree-ring widths. Features such as wood density, the elemental composition called dendrochemistry of its makeup, the anatomical features of the wood, and stable isotopes captured within its cells have been used in conjunction with traditional tree ring width analysis to study air pollution effects, the uptake of ozone, and changes in soil acidity over time.
That is an issue because because since global climate change is in progress, we need to understand the physical, chemical and biological processes that effeect terrestrial carbon levels is increasingly important.

A study Wistuba and colleagues found that tree rings can also warn of impending slope collapses. It turns out that trees that are tilted by landsliding record eccentric elliptical tree rings.

The downslope parts of the rings grow wider than the upslope ones, and in studies carried out in Poland, Malgorzata Wistuba and colleagues found that those tilts are in evidence between three and fifteen years prior to catastrophic collapse. Water Resour. Cook, E.
