The Scottish Wild Salmon Strategy aims to reverse the decline of wild salmon by tackling pressures such as changing river temperatures. Trees can reduce river temperatures by reducing the amount of sunlight reaching the water surface, much like natural parasols. By increasing the amount of woodland next to rivers it is possible to reduce some of the effects of climate change on river temperature.
