    Valuing tree and forest ecosystem services

    Our research explores the value of different tree and forest ecosystem services and uses innovative methods to identify and capture those values
  • Research

    Valuing and governing tree and forest ecosystem services

    This research provides new insights into how to recognise and understand the value of ecosystem services provided by trees and forests.

    Cooling effect of street trees in Bristol

    In cities the climate is significantly warmer than in the surrounding countryside. This is known as the Urban Heat island (UHI) effect.  The UHI effect is caused by a range of factors including hard building surfaces which absorb and radiate heat and the design of urban areas which means they...

    Understanding stakeholder visions for woodland expansion in Scotland

    The development of stakeholder visions for woodland expansion in Scotland from analysing organisational documents, workshops and interviews.
  • Research

    Exploring changes in ecosystem services under varying scenarios

    Exploration of the resilience of woodlands to future change by assessing how ecosystem service values and natural capital stocks of woodlands may be affected by change through the application of the UK National Ecosystem Assessment (UK NEA) scenarios and different management approaches, e.g. forest diversification through the application of forest management alternatives

    Demonstrating climate change adaptation at Willows Green

    Our climate is changing and in the future the climate of the south east of England will be more like that which is currently experienced in southern France.  The effects of climate change are already being felt, for example in the south east of England, Oak now comes into leaf...

    Assessing the resilience of UK forests to extreme climatic events

    This project aims to quantify the historic impact and legacy of extreme climatic events on UK forests using tree-ring chronologies, climate and soil data. It focuses on species of major importance to UK forestry in order to provide the information basis for building adaptive capacity into future forest planning and decision making.

    Publications about delivering resilient forests

    This page lists the main publications about planning and management to deliver forest ecosystem resilience produced through the 'Delivering Resilient Forests' research programme.
  • Research

    Delivering Resilient Forests

    Resilient forests are important if our trees are to cope better with changing environmental conditions and threats from pests and diseases. This page provides information on the publications produced as part of Forest Research's 'Delivering Resilient Forests' programme of research.

    Alice Holt Forest climate change adaptation trail

    The Alice Holt Forest climate change adaptation trail opened in 2019. The trail is designed to inform decisions about how we can adjust our woodland management practices to better prepare our woodlands for the changing climate.

    FOSPREF-Wind

    A project within the EFI Network Fund, developing a FOSS GIS modelling platform for stand growth and risk of wind damage.

    B4EST – adaptive breeding for productive, sustainable and resilient forests under climate change

    B4EST will offer new understanding about how adaptive forest breeding can be used to increase forest survival, health, resilience and productivity under climate change and natural disturbances, while maintaining genetic diversity and key ecological functions.

    Training Schools

    Training Schools aim to facilitate capacity building on a topic relevant to the theme of the respective COST Action through the delivery of intensive training on a new or emerging subject.  They can also offer familiarisation with unique equipment or expertise and are typically, although not exclusively, considered to be...

    Forestry and climate change mitigation

    Research to improve our understanding of how forests and woodlands can contribute to the carbon balance at both local and global scales
  • Research

    The origins of shake and drought crack in trees

    The soil conditions experienced by a growing tree are reproduced under controlled conditions. Fluid distributions with the tree are visualised using magnetic resonance imaging in order to identify stresses and determine if these are linked to drought cracking and shake.

    The effects of peatland restoration and on-site forest materials on water quality

    This is one of Forest Research studies on the effects of peatland restoration on water quality and focuses on in-situ forest residues, particularly mulched tree material.

    Harvested Wood Products and Carbon Substitution

    This study reviews approaches to accounting for carbon storage and carbon substitution benefits of harvested wood products under existing carbon market standards, and considers how the UK Woodland Carbon Code - which at present covers climate change mitigation benefits of afforestation in terms of carbon sequestration, might be extended.
