Details

This data set contains eight series of tree-ring widths of maritime pine (Pinus pinaster), with recorded years spanning from 1810 to 2005. The cores were sampled from dominant trees of two sites, with sample plots being located on both: northern Spain (plot code: P44005) and center-east portion of the same country (plot code: P16106). Two trees were selected by plot, and two core samples were extracted by tree. Consequently, the sample design defined three levels: sample in tree on plot (plot level), sample in tree (tree level), and sample level.
