Truettner is studying how wildfires affect the carbon cycle in Alaskan boreal forests using measurements from soils, tree rings, and forest stand demographics in reburned areas to further understand how these landscapes are turning from an atmospheric carbon-sink ecosystem to a source. Isotope dendrochronology is another passion and was the primary focus of his dissertation research.
