Are you looking to make your woodland resilient to climate change? Take a look at Forest Research’s new Climate Change Hub – a comprehensive online resource that centralises and distils climate change adaptation advice for forest and woodland owners and managers in the UK.
Using a range of informative resources including videos, fact sheets and handy case studies, the Hub sets out the climate change risks, adaptation measures and practices that may be appropriate for you to consider to make your woodland more resilient for the future.
Detailed guidance will take you through the decision-making process, step by step, so that whether you are new to woodland management or a seasoned forester, you can draw on the latest evidence and advice to enable you to make informed decisions for your woodland.
Woodland management practices have remained largely unchanged for decades, but climate change brings an urgent need to proactively adapt how our woodlands are managed. From increasing diversity of species or structure to developing contingency plans, the information and decision-making tools available, will provide you with a greater understanding of the risks and measures relevant to your woodland.
Information in the Climate Change Hub distils the latest government advice from the UK Forestry Standard (UKFS) Practice Guide ‘Adapting Forest and Woodland Management to the Changing Climate’. This is available to download or purchase via the Forest Research website.
