ACKNOWLEDGING PLACE

The importance of a land acknowledgement is not to acknowledge land, but to acknowledge the connection between people and place.  It is showing gratitude for the opportunities that our place gives us, and it is an agreement to respect and learn from the peoples who have stewarded the land for tens-of-thousands of years.

WELCOME
We are a diverse group of multidisciplinary researchers dedicated to disentangling anthropogenic and natural impacts on forest dynamics while working closely with Indigenous communities to promote land stewardship initiatives and community wildfire preparedness.
MEGAFIRES & COMMUNITY PREPARDNESS

As megafires become the new norm, we need to come together to protect our communities from the social, ecological, and economic impacts of wildfires.  

INDIGENOUS STEWARDSHIP

Through our partnerships with Indigenous communities and governments we aim to support land stewardship initiatives and incorporate the traditional knowledge of fire stewardship into our practices. 

STUDENT THESES

Our students make the work that we do possible. To learn more about their research here at the Tree Ring Lab follow the link below!

COLLABORATORS & FUNDING ORGANIZATIONS

We collaborate with a variety of communities, institutions, and government to build on the scope of our research projects and educational initiatives.  These are some of the incredible partners that make our work possible.

MEET THE LAB
 

We are a multidisciplinary group of researchers dedicated to disentangling the impacts of land use, fire suppression, drought, insets, and pathogens on forest dynamics and disrupted fire regimes, while working closely with Indigenous communities to promote fire stewardship initiatives and community wildfire preparedness.

Our methods include tree-ring analyses to investigate disturbance regimes and the impacts of climate and humans on forest dynamics. With our graduate students and international collaborators, the Tree Ring Lab has on-going research on fire regimes and forest resilience to climate change in British Columbia and Alberta, Canada and in Northern Patagonia, Argentina.
