On Removing the Growth Trend from Dendrochronological DataA new approach to removing the growth trend from dendrochronological data is described. It is assumed that the growth trend can be described by an expression of the form a.x.ᵇ exp. (-cx), which has the attributes of an increment function, and that accelerated growth, due to release at various points in a tree's history, can be represented by additive components that have the same basic form. A method of estimation is presented, along with some results of preliminary testing. The method shows promise of being superior to currently available alternatives.
