2018 Workshop: Adaptive Management for Climate Change
A two-day mostly field-based workshop addressing real-world, adaptation-focused forest management. We will spend the majority of our time touring a variety of forested stands under active management. Site hosts and instructors will discuss management objectives, silvicultural prescriptions, treatment implementation, and outcomes in terms of multiple values and objectives including a focus on climate adaptation considerations. There will be ample time to discuss management alternatives, tradeoffs, and strategies to integrate uncertainty into silviculture planning.
