    Description

    More than 4,600 native animal and plant species associated with private forests in the United States are at risk of decline or extinction. This report identifies areas across the conterminous United States where at-risk species habitats in rural private forests are most likely to decrease because of increases in housing density from 2000 to 2030. We also identify areas where the future of forested habitats for at-risk species could be compromised by additional pressures from wildfire, insects, and disease.
