An experiment in the treetops

Here’s a first for us – we’re filming one of our academics from the treetops at a giant outdoor experiment in Stafforshire! 🌳🌳🌳🌳
Here’s Prof Jeremy Pritchard at the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research to talk about the experiment which exposes mature oak trees to raised levels of CO2 – expected to be the world average by about 2050 – to see the effect climate change is having on our forests.
Find out how they responded and the work we’re doing in collaboration with colleagues from Western Sydney University who run a very similar experiment with old eucalyptus.
