Oak wood (Quercus sp.) from trees growing in the Dolenjska region of Slovenia was dendrochronologically and dendroclimatologically analysed. Using TSAP/x and ARSTAN computer programmes different types of tree-ring width and late-wood width chronologies were composed. Further DENDROCLIM 2002 computer programme was used to calculate the relation between tree-ring widths and late-wood widths to climate (sum of monthly precipitation and average monthly temperatures). A 191 year-long local chronology, spanning the period of 1812 -2003, has been constructed. The sequences of early-wood widths could not be synchronized or assembled into a chronology. The dendroclimatological analysis showed that growth-ring widths and late-wood widths were mainly affected by June precipitation (positive effect) and June temperatures (negative effect). Correlation coefficients showing the relation between tree-ring or late-wood widths to June temperatures and precipitation proved to be stable in time for the period of last 100 years, for which the instrumental climatological data are available.
