DescriptionThe Adaptive Silviculture for Climate Change (ASCC) project is a collaborative effort that has established a series of experimental silvicultural trials across a network of different forest ecosystem types throughout North America. Scientists, land managers, and a variety of partners have co-developed a series of experimental sites as part of this multiregion study to research long-term ecosystem responses to a range of climate change adaptation approaches (Swanston et al. 2016). Silvicultural treatments at each study site were developed by using a modified process from Swanston et al. (2016). The treatments represent three general climate adaptation options: (1) resistance—maintaining relatively unchanged conditions over time; (2) resilience—allowing some change in current conditions but encouraging an eventual return to reference conditions following disturbance; and (3) transition—actively facilitating change to encourage adaptive responses (definitions modified from Millar et al. 2007).
