    Dendrochronological investigations were made in the the silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) from Lovrenc, Pohorje, Slovenia. Tree-ring analyses were made in discs of 25 healthy, adult, dominant or codominant silver firs and in cores from the roof construction of two older rustic buildings from the same region. Based on chronologies of trees and buildings covering the periods 1785-1996 and 1713-1887, was constructed a 284 years long silver fir chronology for Pohorje. It showed a statistically significant similarity with the Slovene Dinaric silver fir chronology, despite distances between the two regions and great difference in phytogeographical conditions. Both chronologies are expected to be a good base to construct a regional Slovene silver fir chronology for dating fir from the period 1712-1996 in whole of Slovenia.
