Assisted migration forestry: artificial reforestation, trials in bc: allow seeds to be planted further north, better species adapt to environment = more yield. Green roofs: reduce heat inside houses, lower energy use (mitigation, reduce air pollution, filter rainwater, reduce storm water runoff, provide habitat.
