Which tree species are particularly threatened by climate change?

This question was answered by forester Elena Schmidtmeyer in an interview.

Tree species that occur outside their natural range are currently under particular threat. In Germany, outside the mountains, these are mainly conifers such as spruce and larch. They occur naturally in cool, rainy regions. Pine trees are also declining, triggered by drought, heat and subsequent biotic pests. Even beech, which would naturally be the main tree species in Germany, has been severely weakened in some places due to the lack of rain. In general, the number of tree species in Central Europe is rather low compared to North America, for example. This variety is becoming increasingly limited due to climate change. If global warming is not halted, almost all native tree species could be threatened.

The background to the interview:

We are committed to reforestation. One way of doing this is to make donations and to plant trees. On the other hand, we also contribute to making the topic of “reforestation” more visible to the general public. We interviewed forester Elena Schmidtmeyer and filmed a series of video clips with her that answer many interesting questions on the subject.

Why do we get involved and how exactly do we do it? Please read our separate article here.
