The Minnesota Forest Resources Council (MFRC) recently published a report entitled Climate Change and Minnesota's Forests. This report was developed and written in coordination with the Research Advisory Committee of the MFRC and focuses on the following topic areas:
- Likely climate change outcomes in Minnesota and its effect on our forests and forest management.
- Opportunities to increase carbon on the Minnesota landscape and mitigate fossil fuel emissions.
- Adaptive forest management strategies to maintain our iconic forests on the landscape in the face of a changing climate.
The report concludes by providing several possible actions or policies that can be supported in order to prepare Minnesota's forests for our climate change future.
