Adaptive Silviculture for Climate Change: Lessons for timber-oriented managers
The Adaptive Silviculture for Climate Change (ASCC) project is designed to demonstrate adaptation options to natural resource managers and help them integrate climate change considerations into silvicultural decision making. Climate adaptation approaches being examined are designed to sustain ecosystem services into the future, including timber production. As one of the original developers of the ASCC adaptation framework, Brian Palik will discuss research results of interest to stakeholders having timber (or revenue) production as primary objectives. For example, what are the timber production tradeoffs, if any, associated with treatments designed to increase resilience? What growth responses have been observed since treatments were implemented? How are novel timber species, i.e., those adapted to climate change, responding to the treatments? How can these results inform management in similar forest ecosystems across the northern Lake States?
Date: Tuesday September 20, 2022 from 9:00-10:00 am
