I think when people talk of migrations in nature, usually they talk about birds heading south for the winter, like they are beginning to now. However, it appears that plants too (in part perhaps because of climate change) can also migrate.

According to this article entitled “Is this climate change-battered conifer migrating northward? ” by Sarah Gilman over at High Country News it seems that the Yellow Cedar conifer tree up in Alaska is migrating north of there.
