Climate change affecting Christmas trees in B.C. and beyond: expert

The effects of climate change are taking a toll on Christmas tree farms in British Columbia and beyond, with one forestry expert saying the sector that’s already shrinking and shifting will need to adapt in the coming years.

The trees take eight to 12 years to reach the size most people are looking for, and young seedlings are particularly vulnerable to climate risks, said Richard Hamelin, head of the forest conservation sciences department at the University of B.C.

Much of the province has experienced prolonged drought and extreme heat over the last two summers, and the seedlings have shallow root systems that don’t reach beyond the very dry layers of soil near the surface, Hamelin explained.

Those same shallow roots meant swaths of seedlings were swamped or washed away during extensive flooding fuelled by so-called atmospheric rivers of rain throughout southwestern B.C. in November 2021, Hamelin said in an interview.

See, the climate is supposed to stay exactly the same all the time.

“Just like humans, when we are stressed or when we’re more tired, we’re more susceptible to diseases,” said Hamelin. “Well, trees are the same way. So all this added stress from all this heat and flooding make the trees more susceptible to pests and pathogens.”

Trees have gone through cool periods and warm periods, drought and flood, cold and warm. It’s always the same bit of scaremongering, and this time of year has them dragging Christmas into the mix.

Stop Leaving Christmas Lights Turned On 24/7


You’ve probably been told time and time again the importance of conserving energy, but you might be wondering why it’s so important.

First, reducing your energy usage by turning off your lights is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint. Electricity generation is one of the biggest sources of carbon emissions that contribute to climate change. By turning off your lights when you aren’t using them, you can do your part to reduce carbon emissions and therefore help the environment.
