A native provenance seed stand.

How can careful choice of provenance of planting stock make forests more resilient to the changing climate?

Provenance is a forestry term used to describe the location of the stand from which reproductive material (seeds or cuttings) was collected. The choice of provenance of planting stock used to establish new woodlands and the management of existing woodlands to encourage regeneration are both important ways to make future forests more resilient to climate change.

About the series

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