Abstract:This dendro-climatology project compares tree ring growth with climate. In this study core samples were taken from Ponderosa Pine trees in Penticton, B.C. The widths of tree rings were compared with annual precipitation and spring and growing season temperatures to see their relationship. The results show that early spring and moderate summer temperatures as well as an abundance of precipitation result in favorable growing conditions.
