Forest Planner

Overview & Applicability

The Forest Planner enables landowners in Oregon and Washington to find, map, and design custom forest management scenarios for their properties. Users can select the property and forest stands that they want to examine, enter information about the tree species and forest types represented, and select from a variety of management scenarios.

Summary: 

The Forest Planner enables landowners to visualize alternative forest management scenarios for their properties and their effect on variables including timber stocking and yields, carbon storage, and fire and pest hazard ratings.

Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO)

Overview & Applicability

TACCIMO is a web-based information delivery tool that connects climate change science with forest management and planning needs. Science content in TACCIMO consists of quotations from peer-reviewed climate change literature and geospatial projections of future climate and resulting changes in ecosystems. USFS forest plan components are included to connect science with planning language.

Summary: 

The Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO) is a web-based tool and information service that provides science to support integration of climate change science into land management planning.

SAVS: A System for Assessing Vulnerability of Species to Climate Change

Overview & Applicability

The SAVS uses an online questionnaire with 22 criteria to predict vulnerability or population response of species to provide a framework for assessing vulnerability to future climate change. The 22 multiple-choice questions are grouped into four categories by theme: habitat, physiology, phenology and biotic interactions. The questionnaire is completed using information gathered from published materials, personal knowledge, or expert consultation.

Summary: 

SAVS uses an online questionnaire with 22 criteria to predict vulnerability or resilience of an individual species to future climate change. Numerical scores indicating vulnerability or resilience for terrestrial vertebrate species are generated.

Climate Impacts Group - Climate Change Scenarios

The Climate Impacts Group (CIG) used global climate change models, driven by two greenhouse gas emissions scenarios (B1 and A1B), to produce scenarios of future climate for the pacific northwest.
