Tree data for growth and tree positions from five uneven-sized forest sites in Götaland, Sweden. The sites are spruce dominated and were laid out between 2016 and 2018 as part of a PhD-project at Linnaeus University, Dept. of Forest and Wood Technology. Four of the areas have been marked in the field to facilitate long-term revisions.

Dataset with tree growth and tree positions. The trees are positioned with ultrasonic distance measurement and triangulation (Haglöf, Postex). Annual ring widths measured from increment cores.
