    In the paper, a review of publications on controlled experiments of heating and cooling of trees and their significance for the studies of radial tree growth is presented. The experiments carried out by different researchers in anumber of tree species have demonstrated that it is possible to affect cambial activity and processes of wood and phloem formation and by that their anatomical structure; however, the response of cambium to locally elevated or decreased temperatures differed in various evergreen and deciduous tree species. Our most recent findings indicate that tree age and thickness off bark (i.e. outer dead bark) appear to influence the extent of such experimentson cambial activity and cell development.
