Table 1 Distance to shore (km), stem density (stem dens/ha−1) of small (5–9.99 cm), all and large stems (defined as ≥ 30 cm diameter), mean diameter at breast height (DBH), mean height (H), basal area, wood mean density (WMD), Species richness (all trees), above ground carbon (AGC, all stems), AGC stems > 10 cm diameter (AGC10), litter carbon, below ground carbon (BGC, that stored in roots), soil organic carbon (SOC) in 0–100 cm depth
