Maples Moving North

Poster, source material and preliminary concepts shown above.



  • Minnesota’s maple trees have moved north and east due to rapid changes in temperature and moisture brought on by 100 years of rising carbon levels in the atmosphere
  • The migration of maple trees pose a potential threat to other tree species native to northern climates, such as pine trees
  • If temperatures keep increasing over time, the forests of northern Minnesota will change into a hardwood and grass ecosystem
