Trees have different growth rates, depending on their species.A red maple with a 10-inch diameter and competing with other forest-grown trees can easily be 45 years old while a neighboring red oak with the same diameter would only be approximately 40 years old.The black triangles mark the phantom years."Pile from The Strood, in Roman cut (223 cm high), re-dated from the late 1st c.

The Medieval Warm Period (MWP) dates from around 1150 to 750 b2k.
"A proof-of-concept self-calibrating chronology [based upon the Irish Oak chronology] clearly demonstrates that third order polynomials provide a series of statistical calibration curves that highlight lacunae in the samples."C values.
