10th World Dendro Conference

World-Dendro 2018 Supporters

Reminder- Registration closes on March 31st!

The World Dendro Conference is a non-for-profit event, embraced within the charter of the Tree-Ring Society, and supported by the society's membership, participant registrations, and generous contributions by agencies and individuals with an interest in advancing tree-ring research and education.

Yet despite this advantage, between every 4 year conference cycle, the costs of organizing this event increases. In the end, when all the rents, labor, transportation, printing, and catering fees, etc.. have been paid, whatever balance remains is never more than a toast for all the many who volunteered to organize the event. However, in 2018 we want to break from this tradition (see: Fiscal Policy at the bottom of the registration tab on this website). If you would like to make a donation to the 2018 World Dendro Bhutan Foundation please contact Paul Krusic. Your donation will be used to offset the costs in providing financial support and services to participants; permitting us to charge less and offer more.

We wish to acknowledge and thank the following groups and organizations for their contributions to the 2018 World Dendro Conference Thimphu, Bhutan.
