Forest Stewardship Series 25: Adapting Forests to Climate Change

(2017)

Forests are shaped by the climates in which they grow. Climate has always changed over time, but many of the changes we now observe have not occurred in recent decades or even thousands of years. This faster rate of change can impact forest health in many ways. As a forest landowner, there are decisions you can make now about how you manage your land that will help you protect your forest against the likely effects of a changing climate. This publication can help you better understand the evolving science of climate change, the possible effects these changes will have on forests, and the actions you can take to better adapt your forests to the climate of the future.
