Abstract

A well preserved pine trunk, 3-4m long and 0,3m thick, sticking out of a bog situated about 1010m above sea-level, in the now almost treeless area above Nysetra on the Dovre plateau, has been dated at 8240100years B. P. This great age corresponds well with the results obtained from other regions in Norway and also the Sylarna-Ovik mountains in Sweden, showing that pine reached its highest post-Weichselian altitude and widest distribution just before 8000 B. P. (IMB).
