Abstract The article discusses the importance of dendrochronology to land manager, fire ecologist and global change biologist in order to date the past fire events which are manifested by injuries on the trunks on long-lived trees. It states that dendrochronology traces the fire scars or records of past landscape fire activity with unparalleled temporal resolution. Global climate change is also a factor that easily acquires fire data and understanding the relationship with interannual and multidecadal climate cycles.
