Trees and a Warming Climate: Strategies for Management and Adaptation
The science behind and effects of climate change are undeniable. The value and benefits of trees in the face of climate change is also undeniable. Allen will discuss strategies for managing existing trees, everything from soil improvements to pruning and pathogen management. He will also review strategies for adapting to a warmer climate such as assisted migration (planting trees from warmer regions). You will leave with a better understanding of the impact climate change will have on your trees and gardens as well as better strategies for adapting to it.
