White spruce seedlings have colonized the site of the Coldfoot transplant garden (CF, 67°15′32″N, 150°10′12″W) since the original garden was established in 1982. Some trees are 2-3 meter tall. All seedlings and trees within the current (2014) garden were tagged, located with a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver, and measured in 2015 and 2016 for total height and girth at 10 centimeter height and leader length.

White spruce trees were tagged in on July 23rd 2015, GPS pinpointed, and then measured for total height, girth at 10cm height, and leader length. Note that the width was measured in mm and then converted to cm. In 2016, Sept. 18, only one row of trees were measured because of the lack of time and man hours.
