Climatic Adaptation of White Spruce and Lodgepole Pine in Alberta Controlled Parentage Programs

White spruce and lodgepole pine make up about 80% of all trees planted in Alberta annually. Therefore, adequately addressing climate change adaptation for forestry in Alberta requires a careful examination of white spruce and lodgepole pine breeding in individual CPP programs and across programs. This report is a compressed version of a comprehensive climatic and genetic analysis of the two species; more technical presentation of the analytical methodologies will be published in the peer-reviewed journals. Throughout this report, “CPP” and “breeding region” may be used interchangeably to mean the same thing.
