Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians: Climate change and lower-quality hardwood stands

Yes
Planning
The Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians, located in east-central Wisconsin, manages over 20,000 acres of forestland. Tribal forestry staff members recently attended a Forest Adaptation Planning and Practices training to consider climate impacts and potential adaptation actions. In particular, they considered a timber sale in a stand of northern hardwoods that typifies some of the challenges presented in lower-quality hardwood stands. The prescription for this stand has been written and trees have been marked for harvest in the winter of 2014/15. More information from this project will be shared as the project develops.
