This dataset collects individual georeferenced tree height data from Pinus pinaster Aiton planted in common gardens in France, Morocco and Spain, between years 1966 and 1992. The experimental design varies depending on the common garden, from a randomized complete to incomplete block design, RCB or RIB, respectively. The final dimension of the dataset is 123,801 individual tree height data measurements  with 14 common gardens and 182 different genetic units. The data can be used to assess genetic variation and phenotypic plasticity with further applications in biogeography and forest management. 

From the list of coauthors listed above, the following are responsible of the raw data: Ricardo ALIA, Hassan SBAY, Annie RAFFIN and Patrick PASTUSZKA.
