A Tale of Two Trees

The climate maps show the impact warming temperatures are projected to have on two trees currently thriving in the Chicago area, the American linden (Tilia americana) and the Autumn Gold ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba ‘Autumn Gold’).  The color green indicates a suitable habitat, while the reddish-brown indicates the climate has grown too warm to support the tree.
