Table 5 Estimated date of onset and cessation, as well as the duration (± one standard error) of growth at the four study sites in years 2010–2012. Note that an onset/cessation could only be determined for the various sites in in certain years, depending on when the dendrometers were installed

From: Growth at the microscale: long term thinning effects on patterns and timing of intra-annual stem increment in radiata pine
