Title: Dendrochronological analysis of the growth rate of White Spruce in Whitehorse, Yukon
Author: deBruyn, Alexander

Abstract: We used an increment bore to take core samples of 15 specimens of White Spruce, Picea glauca, then compared the observed annual growth rates observed in the tree rings to the annual mean temperature, annual precipitation, and the average of July’s temperature highs in order to show the correlation. A difficulty in the procedure eliminated some of the raw data, but enough remained to show that isolated White Spruce specimens will grow more quickly when they are in non-crowded areas.
