Treeline Change in Norway


  • Changes in land use and climate both are impacting the distribution of high elevation forests

  • This project, initiated by MS Student Adam Airoldi, examines the recent rebound in treeline elevation in Norway in response to changes in land use and climate. It also assesses the potential C sequestration as alpine forests redevelop in their former range in the absence of grazing and mining pressure.
