These data were collected to quantify oak mortality during the 2014-2017 drought. 30 tenth hectare drought plots were established throughout the blue oak woodland of Sequoia National Park. Information on species, size, and mortality were collected for all standing trees in each plot. In addition, two long-term 2.25 ha plots were established, in which the same data were collected.
