Seeds from 79 natural stands throughout the ponderosa pine range, both east and west of the Continental Divide, were sown and grown in a nursery for three to four years in the 1960's. These seeds were then distributed to plantations, mostly in the Great Plains. This dataset contains the height of the surviving trees after 15 years for 14 plantations.

Seeds were collected from stands throughout the ponderosa pine (var. scopulorum) range, east of the Continental Divide; and populations in the ponderosa pine (var. ponderosa) range, west of the Continental Divide. These seeds were grown in a nursery near
