Climate Change Projections for Individual Tree Species in the Central Hardwoods Region- Handouts

Tree species will likely respond individually to climate change, depending on their particular silvics and ecological tolerances. These handouts summarize general climate change projections for tree species across several large landscapes in Illinois, Indiana, and Missouri. Sources of information include NIACS vulnerability assessments and tools like the Climate Change Tree Atlas.

General expectations can be combined with local knowledge and management experience to judge risk on a particular site.
