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.

REINFFORCE Arboretums: Sentinel devices against pathogens at the European level.

Between 2011 and 2013, thanks to the REINFFORCE project of the Interreg Atlantic Area programme, a collection of 38 arboretums with different origins from 32 different forest species was established along the European Atlantic coast (from Scotland to Portugal). The aim was to observe their growth, phenology and condition that different diseases and pests […]
