Climate change is causing increased precipitation and more frequent and intense storms in Wooster, OH. White oak (Quercus alba) tree rings can serve as a record of past climatic conditions, and they can be analyzed to determine tree response to a changing climate. Our team analyzed white oak tree rings to see how the species is responding to a wetter climate and to learn how white oaks are responding to climate change.
