A Station for botanical and dendrochronological research was founded in Vaišnoriškė village in 1976. The station was aimed at the environmental monitoring. A small village Vaišnoriškė is located in the northeastern Lithuania (National Park of Aukštaitija). The climate in this region is more continental in comparison to other regions of Lithuania. The key features are: lower amount of precipitation and wind speed, colder winters and delayed spring in comparison to other regions. The climate is influenced by forested land with many lakes, which forms specific macro-climatic conditions. E. Šimkūnienė is responsible for the observations.
