New Zealand Trees Point Pattern

The data give the locations of trees in a forest plot.

They were collected by Mark and Esler (1970) and were extracted and analysed by Ripley (1981, pp. 169-175). They represent the positions of 86 trees in a forest plot approximately 140 by 85 feet. Ripley discarded from his analysis the eight trees at the right-hand edge of the plot (which appear to be part of a planted border) and trimmed the window by a 5-foot margin accordingly.
