This data publication contains annual tree height and diameter measurements from 1997 to 2008 for trembling aspen, sugar maple, and paper birch as part of the Aspen FACE (Free-Air Carbon Dioxide Enrichment) Experiment. This experiment was located on a research farm near Harshaw, Wisconsin (renamed the Rhinelander Experimental Forest in 2015) and consisted of twelve 30 meter diameter rings of aspen, birch and maple trees in which the concentrations of carbon dioxide and tropospheric ozone were controlled. Because there was no confinement, there was no significant change in the natural, ambient environment other than elevating these trace gas concentrations.
