Wind impacts trees and forests in two ways: (1) through direct damage and (2) by causing them to adapt their growth forms. The effects of wind are relatively well understood in plantation forests, where they can have severe economic impacts. I will discuss how knowledge and techniques from the plantation industry can be transferred to tropical forests, and so aid conservation efforts. I will also give an overview the relevant research on this topic and outline future research directions.
