The Centre for Forestry and Climate Change researches the effects of environmental and climate change on forestry, and how the sector can play its part in adaptation and mitigation of climate change.

The Centre also develops entomology, pathology and environmental sciences in order to deliver holistic understanding of climate change and forestry.

The Centre comprises a number of programme groups each based around a common research theme or service:

Programme groups:

  • Changing physical environment
  • Climate change adaptation
  • Emerging pests and pathogens
  • Forestry and carbon (GHG) management
  • Integrated forest monitoring and research forests
  • Pests and pathogens under environmental change
  • Tree health regulatory support
  • Urban greenspace
