New resource on climate change for Minnesota's forests

September 28, 2020

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.

The full report is available to download from the MFRC website or you can request a printed copy of the report from Hannah Friesen (hannah.friesen@state.mn.us).
