The latest in our Climate Change Factsheet series have been published today, Wednesday 9th February.

Aimed at practitioners, the factsheets showcase the breadth of research carried out by Forest Research, sometimes over decades, demonstrating how trees and forests are facing the challenges of climate change, and offering actionable insights into how trees and woodlands can help mitigate the effects of climate change.

These next four factsheets cover adaptation, urban forests and the effects of climate change on the impact of Canker and Phytophthora. The factsheets can be viewed and downloaded from the links below:

Climate change and tree diseases (Canker) – Forest Research

Climate change and tree diseases (Phytophthora) – Forest Research

Climate change and urban forests – Forest Research

Climate change adaptation – Forest Research

There are now 12 factsheets in the series, and they can be viewed on this website.
