Forests, Wood + Climate Change

Climate change predictions suggest that the suitability of some BC tree species for reforestation could be impacted by the expected changes in climate. A key strategy for sustaining productive forests is through assisted migration—the planned movement of a species to mimic natural population or range expansion.

BC practices innovation in reforestation to ensure forests are adapted to changing climates while maintaining a reliable supply of quality forest products.
