Dear Tom,

files with living trees data attached, that I use to update Yamal
(these data have been used among many others in Esper et al. 2009:

First letters in ID means river (valley):
TNL - Tanlova-yakha;
HDT, M, X - Khadyta-yakha;
POR - Porza-yakha;
all others - Yadayakhodyyakha
(you can see the map of this area in Holocene, 2002, V. 12, N 6
(ADVANCE-10k issue), fig 1, page 718).

In Excel file - the same data but with age of rings (from
central ring).

As to photo - did you mean landscape photographs (old and recent)?
Unfortunately no photos there are for Yamal.
Stepan Shiyatov has published recently book with comparative photos
in Polar Urals.
Two examples from this book are attached.
If you mean this kind of photographs I ask Stepan to find more
impressive pictures.

Best regards
