The data consists of long term diameter growth observations of uneven-sized Norway spruce dominated stands. The site has been managed with continuous individual tree selection for at least 100 years. There are two plots with different timing of cutting treatments. Height and age measurements of sample trees. One of the plots have coordinate set tree positions. Initial revision is 1989. The first plot consists of 209 tree observations and the second plot consists of 257 tree observations (at first revision point).

The Excel file [Romperöd uniform data copy of version 3.xlsx] contains all data from all revisions between 1989 and 2015. This data is without coordinates of the tree positions. The data file contains information that links the tree identities between the two data files.

The Excel file [Romperöd level 1b copy.xlsx] contains data from an extended revision of the thinned plot where the trees were also coordinate set. 74 of the trees have extended information on annual growth ring, root incidence, crown shape and height.
