Mean height of returns in the 250m^2 neighbourhood of the tree, m
Proportion of returns from vegetation in the 250m^2 neighbourhood of the tree, m
30th percentile of returns in the 250m^2 neighbourhood around the tree, m
70th percentile of returns in the 250m^2 neighbourhood around the tree, m
Field measurements of tree diameter and height, height of dead branch and crown base height and tree location were taken from the trees in a field campaign. Volume was estimated based on diameter, height and upper stem diameter. In addition, the area was remotely sensed using airborne laser scanning. Detectable individual trees were delineated from the ALS point cloud and associated with the field measurements. From a large set of tree-specific ALS characteristics, the data includes those that were used in the final models of stand characteristics in Maltamo et al (2012).
