Where do ecologically valuable or rare tree species, such as oaks or yews, grow? The Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research (WSL) has developed the first high-resolution online maps that can provide detailed answers to such questions for 56 woody species found in Swiss forests.
Visualise the current condition of Swiss forests with the FORTE app. Filter data by tree species or by area through an intuitive user interface to assess heat and drought induced stress and the consequences for forest health.
PorTree models the habitat suitability of major species of forest trees in Switzerland under the influence of climate change. It's a joint project run by the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) and WSL.
