How to select species in forest plantation to cope with future Climate Proofing?

Most of the foresters are now convinced that climate is changing and has an impact on the growth and survival of his future forest. In this context, species choice is a crucial decision, and the understanding of futures climate/soil interaction impact on a given species is extremely complex. So many tools and projects are under […]

Understanding the Impact of Climate Change on Forests

Two videos (in French) aimed to promote better understanding of the phenomena responsible for climate change and their impacts on forests.

Diversification of Britain’s forests: initial results from a new generation of species trials.

Forestry in Britain is reliant on a small number of tree species and is facing the challenges of climate change and an increasing number of new pests and diseases; this narrow palette of species increases risk. After a 40-year gap in large scale species trials a new series were established in 2012.
