Title: SPRUCE Tree Growth Assessments of Picea and Larix in S1-Bog Plots and SPRUCE Experimental Plots beginning in 2011

Abstract

This data set reports tree growth measurements of mature Picea mariana and Larix laricina located in the S1-Bog permanent plots and the SPRUCE experimental study plots, Annual data collections were initiated in February of 2011 and have been continued on an annual basis during mid-winter observation periods at the end of February or early March. Data collections are anticipated to continue through February of 2025 and this data set will be appended annually. Initial observations in 2011 included measurements of circumference at 1.3 m (diameter at breast height assessments; DBH) above the nominal bog hollow surface, tree heights and crown diameters. Subsequent annual measurements have focused on the measures of circumference at DBH. Circumference measurements to the nearest 0.1 cm are converted to DBH in cm and basal area at DBH in (cm2). Tree height and crown diameter are measured to the nearest 0.1 m.
