Foresters are experimenting with ‘assisted migration’ planting southern trees species in northern states as “…the climate will [likely] change 10 times faster than many tree species can move.”3 Using an experimental forest in Rhode Island as reference, we included temperate species predicted to do well in this region, such as wild persimmon. Also included is the odorous Tree of Heaven which tolerates nutrient poor or salty soils, pollution, and heat.
