This series of factsheets are aimed at practitioners, individuals and organisations wanting to understand more about trees, woodlands and forests and climate change.
They demonstrate how forests and woodlands might help mitigate the effects of climate change and highlight ways in which management practice may need to adapt to increase resilience. We also look at the effects of climate change on tree diseases and the potential impact on our woodlands.
Forest Research has been carrying out research for many years that helps us understand the direct and indirect impacts of climate change, the role of trees and forestry in helping reduce impacts, and the ways that management practices may need to change to provide resilient trees, woodlands and forests for the future.
If you are looking for more detailed information about climate change research, including collaborative projects, reports, studies and publications, please use the search tool on our main website.
