Spring is a very popular time of year for planting new trees. If you're in the market, you should consider how rising temperatures and changes in precipitation patterns may affect habitat suitability of your urban trees throughout this century.
Maple trees, which are commonly planted in urban areas, are projected to see changes in future habitat suitability depending on the species and location. For instance, silver maple and red maple trees are well suited for Indiana’s projected climate by century’s end. However, black maple and sugar maple are expected to decline.
