Webinar: Climate-Ready Woodlands

May 14th, 2024 from 9-10am
Creating climate-ready woodlands

As Minnesota’s climate changes, forests will face increasing pressure from tree diseases and pests, heavier and more frequent rainfalls, warmer temperatures, and prolonged drought. Using modeled climate response data from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the US Forest Service Northern Research Station, University of Minnesota Extension created a suite of regionally specific recommendation lists of climate-resilient trees and plants (z.umn.edu/climateready). This webinar will outline the climate change basis, Extension’s methodology, and the content of these tree and plant lists. 

Each webinar is rated for one CAT1 credit; participants, keep an eye on the chat for the link to the webinar CE request form towards the end of the hour. We will record each webinar and post it on the SFEC YouTube Channel. Recordings are typically available within one week of the live broadcast.
