With climate change, Canada’s forests will be exposed to rapid changes in their environment, including variations in temperature and precipitation. Tree species will have to migrate to find the growing conditions that meet their needs. However, the rate of change in climatic conditions is expected to exceed their ability to migrate by a factor of 5 to 10. This raises the question of whether planning strategies for plantations should be adjusted accordingly.
