Presented by François Hébert (DRF), research scientist at the Direction de la recherche forestière (Forest research branch) of the Ministère des Ressources naturelles et des Forêts du Québec (Quebec’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Forests), this webinar focuses on the adaptation of silviculture practices to climate change. François discusses his research projects, each one addressing one climate risk and one strategy to manage this risk.
Learn about the opportunities and challenges associated with forest management and climate change, with a focus on how climate models can be used to visualise and support the development of long-term adaptation and mitigation strategies in forest environments to address climate risks.
This document provides design guidance and explores opportunities for using trees to maximize climate adaptation benefits to local communities throughout Metro Vancouver. As a companion to the Urban Forest Climate Adaptation Framework, this guidebook provides illustrations and additional technical guidance to support the design of tree plantings to maximize benefits to local communities throughout Metro Vancouver.
