Silviculture for Climate Change - Overview

Silviculture refers to practices that are used to manage the growth and composition of forest vegetation for an array of objectives, such as wildlife habitat, timber, water resources, recreation, and much more. Many silvicultural practices are potentially valuable tools for helping forests respond to a changing climate.

This set of papers discusses some of the expected impacts on forest vegetation as a result of climate change, and how silviculture may be used to help forests adapt. Some detailed regional examples are discussed, and additional resources are provided for those who wish to explore the topic in more depth.
