Climate Change Tree Atlas

The Climate Change Tree Atlas helps determine current and future suitable habitat and distribution of 134 tree species in the Eastern United States based on current climate and projected suitable habitat for the year 2100. The Atlas provides detailed information on environmental characteristics defining these distributions for each species, and can be used to develop large-scale projections of species responses to climate change. By taking current distributions of tree habitat in the U.S. and applying a variety of climate scenarios, land managers can predict which areas will be suitable for which species.

Information is presented in the form of maps of current suitable habitat, maps of projected future suitable habitat for the year 2100 under different climate scenarios, and statistical tables providing quantitative estimates of species habitat changes. The data and maps can be sorted by state, geographic region, national forest/grassland, national park, and eco-region.
