It is difficult to determine the age of standing, live tree if there isn't specific information about its planting. The most useful and effective method by which the age of the tree can be determined is to count the annual rings of wood growth. These annual rings show the amount of wood produced during one growing season. A ring typically consists of a light-coloured growth portion and a dark-coloured portion produced in a stabilization season. Dendrochronology is the dating and study of annual rings in trees.
