Stand inventory data from the 10‐ha forest research plot in Uholka, Ukraine

In 2000, a permanent forest plot of 10 ha has been established in the core zone of the primeval beech forest of Uholka. All living and dead trees with a diameter at breast height (DBH) ≥ 60 mm were identified to species, DBH measured, stems tagged and mapped. Since then, the plot has been remeasured in 2005, 2010, and 2015. In total, 4,820 individual trees were measured with 14,116 individual measurements throughout all four inventories. In spring 2018, an Airborne Laser Scan was carried out, covering the Uholka‐Shyrokyi Luh forest. This data set allows us to derive a high‐resolution digital elevation model (DEM) of the plot area. The data set allows for important insights into the development and the spatial and temporal dynamics of primeval beech forests.
