Abstract

The AA. present a 300-year-long tree-ring width chronology from xeric-site Scots pines (Pinus sylvestris L.) in Tyresta National Park, east central Sweden. Tree-ring widths were compared to the long observed temperature and precipitation records from Stockholm during 1786-2000. Analyses of the climate/growth relationship showed that, in general, May-June precipitation had a dominating influence on pine growth. The years between 1815 and 1833 appear to be particularly dry in the 300-year context. This is the first tree-ring chronology from southern Sweden that provides multi-century information of past summer drought and moisture variability with high resolution
