Climate change vulnerability assessment for New England and northern New York forests

The Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science and USDA Forest Service published a new report describing the anticipated effects of climate change on forest ecosystems in the northeast. The report, New England and Northern New York Forest Ecosystem Vulnerability Assessment and Synthesis, has more than 30 authors, and provides a foundation of information that land managers can use to make ecosystems more resilient and adaptable to future conditions. An interactive story map is also available to provide a summary of the report and showcase many adaptation stories from across the region.
