Growth of Loblolly pine trees

The Loblolly data frame has 84 rows and 3 columns of records of the growth of Loblolly pine trees.




An object of class c("nfnGroupedData", "nfGroupedData", "groupedData", "data.frame") containing the following columns:


a numeric vector of tree heights (ft).


a numeric vector of tree ages (yr).


an ordered factor indicating the seed source for the tree. The ordering is according to increasing maximum height.


This dataset was originally part of package nlme, and that has methods (including for [, as.data.frame, plot and print) for its grouped-data classes.
