D.C.2.2 Handbooks - Identification Handbooks for non native trees in the Alpine Space
In this pocket guide, we describe 49 non-native tree species (NNT), selected from more than 530 NNT that occur in forests, peri-urban and urban areas in the Alpine Space. We selected these NNT because they are widely distributed in the countries of the Alpine Space (i.e. Austria, Italy, Slovenia, France, Switzerland and Germany) and appear useful for climate change adaptation due to their species-specific characteristics. Some of these species were selected because they may have the potential to be or become colonising character. Each tree species is presented on four pages with a brief general description, a drawing, and photographs of the characteristic and morphological species features. In addition, various symbols and icons are used throughout the brochure for each species to represent their potential invasiveness, ecological requirements, and degree of allergic potential.

D.C.2.2 Handbooks - ALPTREES Handbook for Management of non-native tree species IN FORESTS of the Alpine space
In ten chapters this Handbook provides results and scientific approaches of our partners about the situation of non native tree species in Alpine Forest areas.
Selected non native tree species that were already introduced in the Identification Handbook 1 find additional indepht information about legislative frameworks as well as expert's opinions.
