Fine roots from the soil archive of the Swedish National Forest Soil Inventory, collected in 1964, 1972, 1985, and 1998, were analyzed for 14C contents. Two different methods of estimating residence time were compared. Residence time of root C was estimated to be 8 y using a steady state 1-pool model.
