    Age-related alternation in the sensitivity of tree-ring width (TRW) to climate variability has been reported for different forest species and environments. The resulting growth-climate response patterns are, however, often inconsistent and similar assessments using maximum latewood density (MXD) are still missing. Here, we analyze climate signal age effects (CSAE, age-related changes in the climate sensitivity of tree growth) in a newly aggregated network of 692 Pinus sylvestris L TRW and MXD series from northern Fennoscandia. Although summer temperature sensitivity of TRW (r(All) = 0.48) ranges below that of MXD (r(All) = 0.76), it declines for both parameters as cambial age increases. Assessment of CSAE for individual series further reveals decreasing correlation values as a function of time. This declining signal strength remains temporally robust and negative for MXD, while age-related trends in TRW exhibit resilient meanderings of positive and negative trends. Although CSAE are significant and temporally variable in both tree-ring parameters, MXD is more suitable for the development of climate reconstructions. Our results indicate that sampling of young and old trees, and testing for CSAE, should become routine for TRW and MXD data prior to any paleoclimatic endeavor.
