Caption: Section through the trunk of a red pine tree (Pinus resinosa). This shows marked growth rings. Visible rings appear as a result of the changing growth rate through the seasons, so each ring equates to one year of growth. The use of patterns of growth rings as an aid to dating a sample is called dendrochronology.
