Learning to adapt to an uncertain future: linking genes, trees, people and processes for more resilient treescapes (newLEAF)

People Involved

Project Description

Tree-scapes are critical to our environment, our health and well-being and our ability to transition to a zero carbon economy via plans to substantially increase tree numbers in the landscape.

However, climate change and increasing risks from pests and disease threaten the UK tree-scape like never before. This future is uncertain but we do know that our tree-scapes must change to survive and thrive. Although we may see tree-scapes as permanent or fixed, in truth they have an amazing capacity to be dynamic and shift on timescales that are relevant to human lifespans.
