Climate change affects the health and resilience of our urban forests through changes in precipitation, maximum and minimum temperatures, and the spread of pests and diseases.
Urban forests with many different species of trees are more resilient to climate change, but there is very little information on what species are suitable...
This research aims to find out how to expand woodland cover in a way that maximises ecological and social benefits. The programme complements the other six programmes and follows collaborative principles to produce tools which support land managers, stakeholders and policy makers to increase engagement with woodland creation activities
This project reviewed evidence on the health and well-being benefits, and social and cultural benefits, of visits to forests, as well as the methods to measure and monitor them. It also provides recommendations for monitoring these benefits to support the implementation of Scotland’s Forestry Strategy 2019-2029.
