Considerations for Your Woodlot – Resources for Foresters and Landowners

Several partners, including the American Forest Foundation, the New England Forestry Foundation, and the Northern Insitute of Applied Climate Science, have developed a series of resources for climate change adaptation for foresters and private landowners for the MassConn Sustainable Forest Partnership. These resources include:

  • A fact sheet for private landowners describing climate change effects on forests and options for adaptation
  • A fact sheet for foresters with additional details on climate change effects and management options
  • A site visit sheet for foresters to use on site visits to private lands, as well as instructions for considering climate risks and opportunities
  • A checklist of action items that foresters can provide to landowners

This outreach effort was funding by a grant from the Wildlife Conservation Society's Climate Adaptation Fund.
