Notes: Method of Mound Dating
Abstract:So-called "perched" trees offer a convenient way to describe the process of subsidence of the mounds upon which they grow, for these trees record: (1) the former mound level by the position of the root collar; (2) the time interval between the initial and present mound levels by the tree's age. It was found that the rate of subsidence of mounds created by uprooted stumps significantly differs from that of mounds resulting from fallen trunks. The variation of the subsidence rate was reasonably small within each type of mound which allows one to date mounds without trees in the same area. Forest Sci. 27:39-41.
