This guide has been prepared to help communities in British Columbia (B.C.) identify and prepare for some of the impacts of climate change. It provides information on how you can use urban forests to manage some of the impacts of changing climates, and how to adapt these urban forests so that they survive and thrive in future climates.
This is a high-level overview that can be used by staff and elected officials in B.C.’s communities—small and large, rural and urban—including those who do not have professional arborists or urban foresters on staff.
