New Resource for Decision Makers in Forest Management

Wednesday, November 9, 2016

Anthony D'Amato, NE CSC Principal Investigator, Paul Catanzaro of UMass, Amherst, and Emily Silver Huff with the USDA Forest Service have created a guide for land owners and forest managers to improve the way we adapt to a changing climate.  The publication "Increasing Forest Resiliency for an Uncertain Future" was written for forest decision makers in New England who are taking action to increase resiliency of our northern forests.

This 29-page document will guide land owners, forest managers and conservaiton organizaitons through understanding of the projected impacts due to climate change, how to evaluate the resilience of forests, and steps to take to increase forest resiliency. The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science, the USDA and NE CSC contributed resoruces in the development of this outreach document.  It can be viewed here: https://masswoods.net/sites/masswoods.net/files/Forest-Resiliency.pdf
