Poplar Density Harvest

Data in the KBS LTER core database may not be published without written permission of the lead investigator or project director Full terms of use

Biomass, stem counts and moisture at harvest from the poplar density experiment

An experiment to investigate the effects of different poplar planting densities on the yield. Poplars were planted with a spacing of 2 × 1 meters, 2 × 3 meters and 1 × 0.5 meters.

This datatable is part of the Poplar Density Experiment dataset. Poplar growth was monitored at different planting densities.
