  • Urban Forests: A Climate Adaptation Guide

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday 31 July 2010
    Objective: 

    This guide has been prepared to help communities in British Columbia (B.C.) identify and prepare for some of the impacts of climate change. It provides information on how communities can use urban forests to manage some of the impacts of changing climates and how to adapt these urban forests so that they survive and thrive in future climates. This is a high-level overview that is targeting at the staff and elected officials in B.C."s communities--small and large, rural and urban--including those who do not have professional arborists or urban foresters on staff.

  • Photovoltaic Potential and Insolation: Canada

    Type: 
    Publication
