Scientists hope to tune up trees to thrive in changing climate

The Vancouver Sun featured research by Sally Aitken, a UBC forestry professor, that aims to increase timber yields and help trees thrive by searching for localized adaptations to heat, cold, drought, snow and rain.

Aitken said trees of the same species from warm places tend to grow longer and faster than trees from colder places, but could also be less resistant to the cold.
