In our May FOREXT Friday we heard the presentations of Gail Atkinson (Forest Research, UK) on the topic of Demonstrating climate change adaptation in woodland in South East England and of Tom Houlihan (Teagasc) on the development of an Irish Forest Carbon Tool.
One of the ways in which Forest Research is educating the community about how we can adjust the woodland management practices to better prepare our woodlands for the changing climate is the Alice Holt Forest climate change adaptation trail, which opened in 2019. The trail shows a range of climate change adaptation measures and options. Read more about the trail.
The Forest Carbon Tool takes user-defined descriptive information on the forest and combines it with existing growth models to estimate potential carbon storage over the lifetime of the forest.
