Central Appalachians Ecosystem Vulnerability Assessment Summary and Highlights

Ecosystems will increasingly be affected by a changing climate. Understanding these potential impacts is an important first step to sustaining healthy forests in the face of changing conditions. As part of the Central Appalachians Climate Change Response Framework project, more than 40 scientists and forest managers collaborated to assess the vulnerability of forest ecosystems in this region to the likely range of projected climate change.

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.

Mid-Atlantic Forest Ecosystem Vulnerability Assessment Summary and Highlights

Evidence of climate change can already be observed in the Mid-Atlantic region. Understanding vulnerabilities is an important first step to sustaining healthy forests and ecosystems in the face of changing conditions. As part of the Mid-Atlantic Climate Change Response Framework project, more than 40 scientists and forest managers collaborated to assess the vulnerability of forest ecosystems in this region to the range of projected climate change

Climate Change and Adaptation: Mid-Atlantic Forests

Forests are a prominent feature of the landscape across the Mid-Atlantic region. The first three sections of this story map highlight key themes from the report and describe the general effects of anticipated changes across the region. The final section shows what foresters and land managers are doing to protect these forests and all of the benefits they provide for us.

Climate Change and Adaptation: New England and Northern New York Forests

The first three sections of this story map highlight key themes from the report and describe the general effects of anticipated changes across the region. The final section shows what foresters and land managers are doing to protect these forests and all of the benefits they provide for us.

Forest Carbon: An Essential Natural Solution for Climate Change

Many landowners have begun to ask how their forest management strategy affects the carbon within their forest and thus the forest’s ability to mitigate climate change. Every strategy has its tradeoffs; therefore, to meet all of society’s needs, we will ultimately need a mix of passive and active strategies across the region.

Increasing the Resiliency of Forests in New England: A Weather-Wise Worksheet for Private Woodland Owners

Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences developed this worksheet to help New England woodland owners deal with changing weather and climate. Landowners are encouraged to use this worksheet with their forester. This workbook lays out four steps to help you prepare for climate change

Keep Forests Healthy: A Tool to Assess Resilience, Health & Productivity

The tool provides a rapid and simple process to assess forest resiliency. This publication contains background information on important characteristics of resilient and healthy forests and examples of potential adaptation strategies. It is accompanied by a scorecard to be used in the field to evaluate the resiliency of a forest.
