Current Projects

While much of Cross Timbers Dendro's work consists of small project land consultations or collecting & analysis on a site, some endeavors are ongoing. There are a couple of joint ventures currently in the works, highlighted below. If you're interested in collaborating on these or have other works in mind, please feel free to reach out!


New Mexico Fire History

Much effort has been put into reconstructing Northern New Mexico's fire history. This project is a collaboration between tree-ring researchers focused on filling in gaps in the fire history on the Southern Rockies. It is in the planning stage, so the ability to provide updates is currently limited. More to come in the following weeks!

Gambel Oak Access Team (GOAT)

Currently, there are no tree-ring datasets published on Gambel Oak (Quercus gambelii). Additionally, there are no oak chronologies published on the International Tree-Ring Data Bank (ITRDB) in the state of New Mexico. In short, there is a dearth of openly available data for dendrochronologists and environmental scientists to work with in the Southwest. This collaborative effort aims to publish Q. gambelii chronologies for the purpose of future research and ease of study for fire histories, dendroclimatology, dendroecology, and potentially, dendroarchaeology.
