The Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative developed the Oak Resiliency Assessment Tool in partnership with the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science and the Forest Stewards Guild. The tool enables natural resource professionals and landowners to assess the resiliency of oak forests and explore relevant adaptation actions. Users complete an assessment of the vulnerability and adaptability of their forest, and are then provided with a report that rates their site as High, Moderate, or Low vulnerability with a list of key considerations and potential management options that could increase oak resiliency. The outputs of this tool are designed to enable natural resource professionals to quickly and easily translate the various threats and opportunities related to oak forests to private family forest owners.
