Climate change, bringing things like droughts, fires, and strong winds, is a big threat to the fast-growing forests in the Atlantic Area, along with the plants and animals that depend on them. Policy makers and foresters are concerned about managing current forests and what to plant to ensure trees that survive climate change.

REINFFORCE2 plans to find solutions by looking at different climate conditions across the Atlantic Area. Partners want to predict how climate change might affect coastal forests by simulating a significant warming of 6°C. To do this, they'll use data from field trials that were set up back in 2012, and now, they'll analyze this data with new technology like drones and sensors, which weren't available ten years ago.

REINFFORCE2 will build on what was learned in the first project (REINFFORCE1) and add new experiments to figure out how forests can adapt to climate change. They'll also work with partners in warmer regions to plan for even hotter climates in the future. The goal is to find and promote solutions on how to adjust forests so that they can continue to provide resources for industries that rely on them.
