Forest Research has today (Thursday 28th January 2021) launched the first in a series of factsheets exploring the effects of climate change on our trees and woodlands.
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.
The first four factsheets are:
- Climate Change and Forests: How do woodlands and forest affect the climate?
- Climate Change, Flooding and Forests: How can forestry help reduce flooding?
- Peatlands, Forestry and Climate Change: What role can forest-to-bog restoration play?
- Climate Change and Biodiversity: Can biodiversity help our woodlands in a changing climate?
Future editions in the series will be published throughout 2021.
