From forests-to-flight: Decarbonizing the aviation sector

From forests-to-flight: Decarbonizing the aviation sector

The International Panel on Climate Change has postulated that, if left unchecked, we will likely see a 3.7 to 4.8°C increase in the Earth’s surface temperature by the end of the century. This temperature increase is likely to result in very disruptive and expensive events, such as rising sea-levels and extreme storms. Growing more trees, capturing CO2 and finding alternative, renewable sources of energy are all ways to help mitigate this temperature rise.

Spruce trees are Canada’s most significant forest resource because they grow in almost every region across the country and are the largest species by the number. Spruce trees also produce high quality wood and fibre that is widely used in the industry. With roughly 400 million seedlings planted per year, spruce are the most reforested trees in Canada. Climate change and unpredictable forest product markets require innovative new tools and technologies for tree breeding programs to deliver reliable spruce stock for future seed and seedling production.
