Forest research launch new Climate Change Hub

The effects of climate change are accelerating, with increasing frequency of extreme weather events such as storms, flooding, drought and wildfire. These and other climate risks pose a significant challenge  to management of our landscapes and wider society. Without action, our forests and woodlands may be unable to provide the multiple benefits they currently do, such as timber production, carbon sequestration, wildlife habitats and recreational spaces. Intervention is needed now to help reduce vulnerability to climate change risks, and this requires changes to what have previously been accepted forestry practices.

Launched in January 2023 by Forest Research and endorsed by the Forestry Climate Change Partnership, this new Climate Change Hub is a new one-stop shop that centralises and distils the latest adaptation information. If you are considering undertaking adaptive practice but are not sure where to start, the Climate Change Hub is a useful resource that reflects UKFS adaptation guidance.
