The indigenous use of bark and cambium harvested from trees has been documented world-wide for centuries, especially in northern latitudes and in western regions of North America, including the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest, and portions of western Montana, Idaho, and Canada. However, there remain substantial portions of western North American where indigenous use of tree resources is largely undocumented. This is especially true in northern Colorado and most of Wyoming. Since 2006, samples have been collected from culturally peeled trees in both Colorado and Wyoming. This study focuses on dendrochronological results from analysis conducted on tree-ring samples collected from peeled trees in northwestern Wyoming.
