Incorrect dates in commit log

I cherry picked a bunch of commits from another remote and Sourcetree is showing the incorrect date for those commits. If I do a git log from the command line the dates are correct, but Sourcetree is showing them all as today's date. Is there any way I can get it to refresh the dates?

There are 2 kinds of date in git, commit date and author date. Both are displayed in the commit details pane if you select a commit and they're different, but to choose which one is displayed in the log table, go to Tools > Options > Git > Display author date instead of commit date in log.

Or Preferences > Git in the Mac version.

This took care of it, thanks.
