Abstract. Inter-annual variations in precipitation play important roles in management of forest ecosystems and agricultural production in Northeast China. This study presents a 270-year precipitation reconstruction of winter to early growing season for the central Lesser Khingan Mountains, Northeast China based on tree-ring width data from 99 tree-ring cores of Pinus koraiensis Sieb. et Zucc. from two sampling sites near Yichun. The reconstruction explained 43.9 % of the variance in precipitation from the previous October to current June during the calibration period 1956–2017. At the decadal scale, we identified four dry periods that occurred during AD 1748–1759, 1774–1786, 1881–1886 and 1918–1924, and four wet periods occurring during AD 1790–1795, 1818–1824, 1852–1859 and 2008–2017, and the period AD 2008–2017 was the wettest in the past 270 years. Power spectral analysis and wavelet analysis revealed cyclic patterns on the inter-annual (2–3 years) and inter-decadal (~11 and ~32–60 years) timescales in the reconstructed series, which may be associated with the large-scale circulation patterns such as the Arctic Oscillation and North Atlantic Oscillation through their impacts on the Asian polar vortex intensity, as well as the solar activity.
