The Climate Change Tree Atlas: Managing Tree Species in the Face of Climate Change

For 20 years, the Climate Change Tree Atlas has given foresters insight into tree species trends and how possible future climate scenarios may affect eastern tree species' habitat suitability. The Climate Change Tree Atlas recently underwent a major overhaul. Now even more resources are available to land managers looking for detailed data sets and maps on species traits, habitat quality, land cover, and dispersal potential for most tree species in the eastern United States
