Tree Species Selection
The Tree Species Selection project is designed to define the current and future needs for informed tree species selection decision-making in B.C. in the context of climate change.
The Tree Species Selection Working Group includes multi-disciplinary specialists, and practitioners from industry and government. It focuses on:
- Being an integrator group for science-based information related to tree species management in the context of climate change
- Exploring implementation frameworks for landscape-level tree species strategies
- Completing regional content for the Tree Species Selection Tool (comprehensive, current and accessible knowledge base that supports the best available tree species management interpretations)
Ecologically suitable species
- Coniferous or broadleaf tree species that are well-adapted to a site's environmental conditions, including the variability in these conditions that may occur over time
