Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
We present a dataset of wood and lumber properties collected from an 18- and 19-year-old Pinus patula Schiede ex Schltdl. & Cham. spacing experiment with four levels of initial tree spacing (1.83 m × 1.83 m, 2.35 m × 2.35 m, 3.02 m × 3.02 m and 4.98 m × 4.98 m). The effect of initial tree spacing was evaluated on radial strips of wood, which were collected from both experimental sites, and lumber that was sawn from logs harvested from one of the plantations.
Geographical LocationThe data was collected at the Montrose and Highlands Forest Plantations located in the Mpumalanga escarpment, South Africa (25.7175° S, 30.9750° E and 25.7665° S, 31.2395° E respectively)
