The paper reviews some of the current objectives, concepts and results of dendroclimatic research focusing on long-term temperature trends and large-scale, tree-ring based temperature reconstructions. We discuss the significance of single tree-ring parameters, their qualities and limitations, and address the issue of emphasizing climatic signals in long series of tree-ring records. We conclude with a discussion of current challenges faced by dendroclimatological research.
