The station Gludsted Plantage is located in the central part of Jutland, in the largest spruce plantation in Denmark. The site is located west of the margin for the ices extend of the last glacial maximum is characterized by a relatively flat terrain on sandy soils. The flux tower station was established in 2008 in the central part of the plantation. The structure of the forest and the management practice is adapted to yield high growth rates and maintain a relatively young stand. Around the flux tower there are sequences of 50-m wide stripes with ca 15-20 m high Norway spruce trees (Picea abies (L.) H.Karst.), with intermediate rows of ca. 25 m high grand fir trees (Abies grandis (Douglas ex D.Don) Lindl.).
