Extreme Weather & Climate Variability: Tree & Forest Health Interactions in the Southeast
Sponsored By: Warnell School of Forestry & Natural Resources
This biannual course is a one-day educational package on understanding and projecting extreme weather events, and associated tree and forest health impacts.

Upcoming weather events and climate variability changes will impact Georgia’s and the Southeast’s trees, forests, and communities over the next 30 years. Educational topics include understandings of past and future weather / climate changes, projected precipitation impacts on trees and landscapes, land use changes driven by climate variability, coastal tree and forest impacts including projected storms, surges, and floods, and tree damage risk assessments.
