Management Options

Moving Forward - Strategies in Action

These basic strategies for climate change adaptation and mitigation in forest management have gained recognition and momentum over the past several years. However, forest managers are now at the point where they are attempting to translate these broad approaches into on-the-ground actions. Many on-the-ground efforts are still nascent, however the following provide some examples of how decision-makers have implemented specific actions under these broad approaches.


Broad Climate Change Strategies

In the broadest terms, natural resource management strategies for addressing climate change can be classified under adaptation and mitigation.


Why focus on forests and climate change?

The climate changes happening now and those expected before the end of the 21st century have serious implications for ecosystems and the benefits they provide, including temperature regulation, watershed protection and flood control, erosion reduction, wood and fuel delivery, recreational and aesthetic value, and species habitat (see more on effects in the Climate Science Primer).
