For every location there is a suitable tree

 
 
The effects of climate change are known:
 
 
Rising temperatures lead to longer periods of warmth and heat, drought, increased frequency and severity of extreme weather events such as heavy rain and storms, and even frost periods and late frosts.
And in the city, these effects only intensify. A tree has to weather everything from road salt and dog urine to soil sealing and exhaust gases.
 
 

Strong climate change resistant trees

 

 
If conditions in a location deteriorate, that does not mean that trees cannot grow, or even flourish, there. After all, there are many hardy urban trees that cope very well with climate change and the locational challenges of modern cities.
 
 

Climate grove

 

 
 
 
In the LvE climate grove there are 61 trees that are classified as resistant to climate change and meet the recommendations of the nursery, the GALK garden directors’ conference, and the Stadtgrün 21 project.
 

“ With the climate grove we want to demonstrate how tree species that are classified as climate change resistant might develop in a changing climate, and give our customers and trade visitors the opportunity to examine the trees in direct comparison. ”

Bernhard von Ehren, managing partner.

 
A total of 61 tree species are represented by one specimen each across an area of around 0.5 hectares. The trees were planted according to
anticipated height, resulting in a breakdown of the trees into small, medium and large, enabling easier comparison. There are no plans to transplant the trees, and the nursery will continue monitor and update
the trees on the plot according to the latest research. The 61 climate tree species include Taxodium distichum (Bald cypress), Nyssa sylvatica (Black tupelo), Magnolia kobus (Kobushi magnolia), Liriodendron tulipifera (Tulip tree), Koelreuteria paniculata (Golden rain tree) and even Fraxinus angustifolia 'Raywood' (Claret ash).
