This datasetincludes all the data we collected at the first summer after biochar application in boreal forests. Our paper“ the effect of biochar on soil CO2 efflux in boreal forests“ now is under review in Annals of Forest Science. Biochar prepared at two reaction temperatures was applied at three rates (including non-amended controls). During the first year after treatment, efflux increased with higher rates of biochar, but the reaction temperature had no effect. o explain char effects on efflux, soil moisture and temperature were also added to the model testing treatment effects. These environmental variables explained more of the variation in efflux and caused treatment to no longer have a significant effect. Based on this result, we concluded that soil temperature explains the effect of char on efflux.
