Climate change could kill Scandinavia’s iconic Christmas trees

Comments Off on Climate change could kill Scandinavia’s iconic Christmas trees

  It looks as though climate change could kill the traditional Christmas tree in Scandinavian countries, as reduced snowfall is affecting the health of spruce trees there. New Scientist reports that snow is very important for the health of trees because it acts like a layer of insulation to protect their roots from the cold northern winters. Studying a stand of 47-year-old Norwegian spruce trees in Eastern Finland for two seasons revealed to the Finnish Forest Research Institute (FFRI) that a thinner snowpack had negative consequences for the trees. Sirkka Sutinen and fellow researchers from the FFRI simulated the effects of thin snowpacks and discovered that when thaws were delayed until mid summer, buds opened much later and created smaller needles.
