Very small samples (less than 300 mg) are analyzed by accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS).

We have subcontractor agreements with several AMS facilities around the world.

Once the timeline exists, the age of similar wood (e.g., from a nearby house) can be established by pattern-matching.

The ultimate tree-ring chronology is the 'master' timeline of bristlecone pines - a chronology spanning more than 9,000 years.

Many archaeological chronologies, including that of the Hohokam in southern Arizona, are based on a series of radiocarbon dates on wood.

This paper argues that because of variability in rates of wood decay processes (in the environment and in systemic context), such archaeological chronologies are potentially biased towards excessive antiquity by an old wood problem and must be reassessed.

Dendrochronology, or tree-ring dating, provides absolute dates in two different ways: directly, and by calibrating radiocarbon results.

Direct Dating of Wood Cross-dating determines the age of undated wood by directly matching ring patterns with trees of known age.

We also offer liquid scintillation analysis using an extra low background Quantulus 1220 for high precision measurements on benzene.Won't someone please take pity on me, and send in just one plain old tree. A Rafter in Procs 6th international Radiocarbon Conf, Pullman, 1965. The quote given above illustrates the preference that radiocarbon daters have had with dating wood and wood charcoal materials.These materials are the most widely used material in radiocarbon dating.Its major source of error has been 'inbuilt', or 'presample' age (Mc Fadgen, 1982).This may be the result of growth age; in which the age of dead wood in the centre of the living tree is dated, or storage age; which refers to the amount of time elapsed from the death of the tree to its use by people (Mc Fadgen, 1982).
