Adapting Vermont Forests to Climate Change

Resource Type


Climate change presents a major challenge to the ecological and economic viability of forests. While there is uncertainty about the timing and magnitude of forest impacts, it is certain that forest changes are and will be occurring. Understanding climate trends, impacts to forest ecosystems, and the capacity of forest species to adapt to change will be the responsibility of forest practitioners as new outcomes to previous practices unfold. This webinar will highlight on recent trends in Vermont’s climate and adaptation strategies for land managers to build resilient, adaptable forests.
