Northern Forests in a Changing Climate

A Nordgen skog conference was held in Hallormsstaður in Eastern Iceland 17-18th of September 2013. The conference theme was Northern Forests in a Changing Climate.

The conference focused on possible developments in northern forest ecosystems in a changing climate and the potential influences on forestry practices. A special emphasis was on how a changing climate may influence our choices of tree species and provenances, now and in the future. 

The conference was held in one of the largest birch woodland and afforestation area in Iceland. Short field trips were included in the program both conference days.
