This paper reports the results of a comparison of wood anatomy of T. occidentalis collected from old living trees, from subaerially exposed stems that started to grow between 3500 and 1600 cal yr B.P., and from submerged stems in growth position dated at more than 8000 cal yr B.P. The AA. also ask the questions: to what degree does the wood of this species deteriorate over time and does this deterioration represent a barrier to the development of exceptionally long dendrochronological data bases?
