The ecological stability of forests in the face of extremes of climate is primarily determined by the adaptability of the current tree species, the diversity of forest structures and the influence of additional stress factors (phytophagous, phytopathogenous, eutrophication and others). Against the background of the local conditions in the Northeastern German Lowlands, the adaptability of the main tree species for the period of the present climate scenarios (max. 50 years) will be evaluated, using the example of the federal state of Brandenburg. During this period, the Scots pine will remain the most important tree species from an economic point of view. The significance of pioneer tree species will grow in the future, for example due to their short generation time and their high rates of fructification. The competitiveness of the oak species and the common beech will continue to differ in terms of location. Different risk provisioning options for action for forest management will be introduced.
