    According to my sister it is called Dentrochronology. Dentro means branches.
    Chronology means study of age. So that seems correct.

    The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.

    This is a new subject for me. But many people are able to predict the age by seeing the condition of the trunk. Of course, it may not be a scientific way. Now through this thread, we learnt that Dentrochronology is the study regarding the age of the tree. Thanks for the information.
