>assisted migration

I found that part interesting because I've been thinking about how tree and crop ranges will change with the climate.  At least Vermont is experimenting with it.

Locally, my town is going to be doing some sort of nature restoration to about 60 acres of woodlots, tree-lines and long abandoned farm fields.  We've engaged a local non-profit that does this sort of thing and I'm waiting for their survey report and recommendations.  I know part of it will be the removal of invasive species but I'm curious as to whether they recommend active planting of trees in the abandoned fields or letting nature re-wild that acreage.

Nice study.  This is the best way so long as you are adjacent to a natural woodland.

We've got parking lots with more trees than England.

"At around 13% forest cover in 2015, the UK is one of the least densely forested countries in Europe (Table 9.1, Figure 9.1). This compares with 38% for the EU as a whole and 31% worldwide."

Why replanted forests donít create the same ecosystem as old-growth, natural forests.

Probably as we are also one of the most densely populated.
