The Metolius New Young Pine site was established in 2010. It is located in a ponderosa pine stand planted in 1992, on the east side of the Oregon Cascade mountains near the town of Sisters. The tower is 18.6 m tall and equipped with a full complement of eddy covariance instrumentation on the vertical profile. The site is also equipped with a horizontal array of instrumentation collecting data on temperature, soil respiration, sapflow, and tree growth, and contributes data to the CO2 concentration project. The site is powered entirely by solar panels.
