New England and Northern New York Forest Ecosystem Vulnerability Assessment Summary and Highlights

The area’s forests will increasingly be affected by a changing climate. Understanding the potential impacts is an important first step to sustaining healthy forests in the face of changing conditions. As part of New England Climate Change Response Framework, more than 30 scientists and natural resource professionals collaborated to assess the vulnerability of the region’s forests across a range of possible future climates.
