DescriptionSummary tables are presented for aboveground biomass and nutrient concentrations for 20 aspen trees (Populus tremuloides Michx.) that were sampled at two study sites in Utah and Wyoming. Trees were divided into seven components - leaves, current twigs, old twigs, deadwood (branches), branches, bark, and bole wood. Samples from each component were analyzed for nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium, zinc, iron, and percent ash.
