This study examines the use of dendrochronological crossdating to determine the dates of death of dead-standing coniferous trees in subalpine forests in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The objectives were: to evaluate the feasibility of crossdating as a technique for describing tree mortality patterns; to find out of the general pattern of tree death over time has been continuous or episodic; and to evaluate the use of tree decay characteristics for estimating relative dates of tree death
