    Description

    Th e Northern Forest Futures Project is intended to be a window on tomorrow's forests, revealing how today's trends and choices can change the future landscape of the Northeast and Midwest. Th e research is focused on the 20 states bounded by Maine, Maryland, Missouri and Minnesota—the most heavily forested and most densely populated quadrant of the nation. The three major components of the project are: (a) an assessment of forest resource management issues common to the region, (b) a multidimensional analysis of current conditions and recent trends that characterize the region's forests, and (c) projections of alternative future scenarios to assess the combined impacts of forest succession, land use change, invasive species, biomass utilization for energy, and climate change on the region’s forests from 2010 to 2060.
