Webinar: Managing Forests for Carbon and Climate Change

Thursday, November 12, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Virtual Class

Climate change, shifts in disturbance regimes, massive fragmentation and loss of forests, an increasing prevalence of non-native invasive insects, diseases, plants and animals have created considerable uncertainty around how to best care for our forests into the future. In response to these challenges, foresters, forest landowners and ecosystem managers are adapting their management techniques to help keep forests healthy and functional in light of massive environmental changes.

Responsible forest management can help our forests adapt and respond to a changing climate, encouraging the growth of healthy, diverse forests with huge carbon sequestration and storage benefits. Responsible forest management can do all this while producing local, renewable resources; lowering adverse social effects linked to resource extraction and presenting a kinder, more just and more sustainable source of resources.

Join City Market and Ethan Tapper, the Chittenden County Forester, for a webinar discussing the effects of climate change on our forests, and opportunities to manage forests for climate mitigation and for adaptation and resilience in a changing climate.
