Adapting the Belgian forests to climate change

adapting to climate change

In order to maintain our forests in the context of climate change, it is important to introduce varied and new species that are more resistant to future climatic conditions. This project consists of testing new species in real conditions through a network of experimental plots spread across the entire national territory. These plantations will be monitored over the long term and will enable the potential of the tested trees to be assessed in terms of productivity, resistance to diseases, pests and extreme weather conditions. This continuous monitoring will allow future generations of foresters to plant the most promising species.
