2) and the earliest sample is from 1975–1976 (point 4 in Fig. There is thus a high probability that the age of the wood just below the bark does not represent the time when the branch was cut and the discrepancy can be as much as 40 years.It should be noted that for radius 1, fewer rings were identified than for radius 2.We therefore try to avoid using ring number terminology, and refer to sampling points using arbitrary numbers for each cross-section.Specifically, the samples collected around the circumference should not be considered as originating from the last ring per se, rather to mean they have been collected from nearest to the bark as was possible.Bottom: live olive tree sampled at Havat Hanania (northern point in the inset map) is shown in the center of the photo. Thus the outermost ring is expected to date to around 2013, the year the branch was cut.It should be noted that the latest bomb Cross section of olive tree branch cut down alive in 2013, in Havat Hanania in northern Israel, with sampling points for radiocarbon marked with black dots around the circumference.In this work, we explore the wood of modern olive trees grown in northern Israel, utilizing radiocarbon dating at near-annual resolution, enabled by the “bomb peak”C were much more subtle, leading to the assignment of a wider window of time possible for dating the sample.Here we examine a cross-section from a living olive branch bearing green leaves, and we expand the investigation of the whole olive tree cross-section studied previously by us.
A similar phenomenon, where regions on the circumference of the tree’s cross-section may die while others continue to grow have been reported for a number of coniferous species growing under adverse conditions, and as they grow in close proximity, the friction at their interface can cause bark breakage.The wearing of the bark can expose live parenchyma cells, which can create “tissue bridges” eventually forming continuous cambium tissue.This process may result in wood of different ages from independent trunks or branches to merge and become visually undistinguishable.The olive tree trunk is composed of independent vascular systems, which results in a sectorial interaction between major roots and specific sections of the crown.Therefore, when certain roots are damaged, the specific section of the crown relying on that water supply will die.
Charred olive wood is abundant in the archaeological record, especially around the Mediterranean.
