Abstract: Dendrochemistry can be used to monitor historical changes of the elemental composition in the polluted or undisturbed areas. In this study for analysis were taken the increment cores of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) from South – Eastern part of Lithuania. This region has one of the biggest pine forest areas in Lithuania, and was chosen to determine the background concentrations of manganese (Mn) in Scots pine tree rings. The particular analysis from uncontaminated areas may help to determine the elemental changes in tree rings at potentially polluted sites. Mn concentrations changes also could be used to reconstruct the pH historical changes in the investigated area soils. Current analysis results revealed that Mn concentration negatively correlated with soil pH and organic carbon, also slightly decreases from the tree heartwood to sapwood.
