The Tree-Ring Society was founded in 1935 by A.E. Douglass and several archaeological colleagues at the third Tree-Ring Conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Douglass and the new science of dendrochronology had recently won worldwide acclaim by providing precise dates for construction of many of the great pueblo villages of the southwestern US. The first issue of the TREE-RING BULLETIN was published the year before, and Douglass was elected as the first President of the new society dedicated to strengthening the fledging discipline of dendrochronology. During the following years, the Society maintained a very close relationship with the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research at the University of Arizona in Tucson, founded by Douglass in 1937.

Dendrochronology today consists of numerous laboratories and individual scientists that benefit from a professional association that serves as a conduit for the latest news of the discipline and serves to promote tree-ring research to the larger scientific community. The membership of the Society is reflective of the global nature of contemporary tree-ring research.
