Climate Change Fact Sheets

The Davey Institute has produced a series of fact sheets that summarize the effects of climate change projected to impact our industry over the next 30-70 years.

The impacts of the average temperature of Earth increasing are readily apparent and projected to intensify including effects on temperature, precipitation, sea level, storm intensity, tree health, pest pressure, wildfire, and worker safety.

Interactive Future Plant Hardiness Zone Map

Trees in your yard are already adapted to the local climate. So as the climate changes, they find themselves in a situation they aren’t accustomed to, and this can stress them out and make them susceptible to drought, insect infestations, and disease infections.

See how your region's climate is shifting and the impact it has on planting so you can better understand how it may affect your landscape.

Connecting Trees As A Green Infrastructure For Climate Change Resilience

Trees are green infrastructure that contributes to climate change resilience through the important ecosystem services they provide.

For example, trees sequester and provide long-term storage of carbon, decrease stormwater runoff, conserve energy through shading and reduction in urban heat, and filter air pollutants.

Services provided by the tree care industry including tree planting, health care, and preservation are important adaptations that contribute to climate change resilience.

The magnitude and economic value of the ecosystem services generated by an individual tree, or an entire urban or natural forest, can be easily quantified using i-Tree, which is a suite of software tools developed through a collaboration of the. U.S. Forest Service, Davey Tree, Arbor Day Foundation, and other partners.
