Abstract:
The basis for the selection of trees to be used in the production of dendrochronologies has long been an issue (Douglass 1946; Fritts 1976). In humid regions the common practice has been to use trees that appear to be in good health. As a part of a larger study involving the impact of ice storms on tree-ring increments (Travis 1989), we show that trees stressed as a result of ice damage produced a stronger climatic signal than nondamaged trees.
