Central Appalachians Forest Adaptation Resources

Forest Adaptation Resources: Climate Change Tools and Approaches for Land Managers provides a suite of materials that enables land managers to consider climate change and to develop actions for making forests better able to cope with climate change impacts. It does not provide specific recommendations, but rather serves as a decision-support tool for incorporating adaptation considerations into current management goals and objectives.

Forest Adaptation Resources provides broad information and ideas on adaptation that are relevant to forests throughout the eastern US and beyond.  An Adaptation Workbook provides a flexible, structured process that enables mangers to assess climate change impacts, challenges, and opportunities, as well as to identify and implement specific adaptation actions to meet management goals and objectives. Companion lists of Adaptation Strategies and Approaches provide a “menu” of potential adaptation responses from which managers can devise more specific tactics for implementation.

The products listed below provide additional information and resources related to the Forest Adaptation Resources.
