As springtime is starting earlier this year, I wondered if that would mean deciduous trees had more time to photosynthesise and, therefore, they could absorb more CO2 or have longer periods to grow, etc.

Also, is there any evidence that colder climate deciduous trees would fare better or worse as conditions change for them?

  • $\begingroup$ yes, you can see from the growth rings that they vary year upon year based on warmth and water. Deciduous trees fair differently to climate change depending on species, the ones on the far ends of their ranges can get outcompeted by other trees. euforgen.org/species check the ranges. don't know what references to add. $\endgroup$ – aliential Mar 10 '19 at 3:37
