Forest Management Adaptation (ADAFOR)

Description:

To ensure that forests are sustainable into the future woodland managers need to consider tree species selection, adapting planting regimes and technical innovations. The project aims to stimulate a cross-border strategy for understanding the climate change responses and adaptation capacity of forest ecosystems commonly found in the south of England and north of France. Specific objectives of the project are: • Improve our knowledge and understanding of the impact of climate change by monitoring differences in the phenological (life-cycle timing), biodiversity, dendrology and health of forests • Increase awareness amongst foresters and woodland owners on the potential impacts of climate change and develop innovative management solutions within a framework of sustainability • Improve the quantity and quality of forest management to increase woodfuel production and renew/enhance ecosystem services
