Abstract

These are the data reported in van Kampen et al. (2022) "Drought timing and species growth phenology determine intra-annual recovery of tree height and diameter growth" published in AoB Plants. They describe patterns of height and diameter growth for saplings of six tree species undergoing experimental drought conditions at different times of year. 

Methods

A full description can be found in the published manuscript. Briefly, weekly measurements of soil moisture, height, and diameter growth were conducted for 288 potted tree saplings of six tree species (Acer rubrum, Betula papyrifera, Prunus serotina, Juniperus virginiana, Pinus strobus, and Thuja occidentalis). Droughts were applied in spring, summer, or fall for a subset of these trees. The data reported here are the processed data used to generate the plots and statistics reported in the publication.
