Canadian scientists helping trees outrun climate change

Trees being adapted to their local climate. I should have known that, but I never thought of it. They would have to be, wouldn't they? It's not like individual trees can up ad move to a new location after all. 

In an effort to speed things up, she and her colleagues are digging into the genomes of lodgepole pine and white spruce to look for genetic patterns associated with climate. That allows researchers to analyze genetic diversity that already exists in the forest and select for characteristics that will produce seeds matched to the environment where they’ll be planted.
