Data that trees are recording can uncover unique information for society. The tree rings have recorded information about the climate, environment and other processes which happened around them.

 

With this data “a piece of" wood gains greater value, as a historical material and a source of information. The text typed into the tree rings allows us to understand the specific data within the wood.
