Operationalizing Climate Appropriate Portfolios of Tree Diversity

Export citation

Key messages

  • Climate Appropriate Portfolios of Tree Diversity (CAPTD) are mixes of tree species’ planting materials, delivered to growers, that are environmentally-matched to planting sites and purpose-matched to planting requirements.
  • CAPTD are necessary to respond to climate change in conjunction with other challenges that tree planting can help address.
  • A possible pathway for the operationalization of CAPTD, outlined in this brief, involves a series of steps to define the portfolios and then implement them, drawing on different tree-knowledge resources, consultation approaches and planting material production methods.
