Climate Change Field Guide for Northern Minnesota Forests

Use this field guide as a quick climate change reference during field visits or forest planning in Minnesota.

Climate change is a growing concern for forests across Minnesota. Foresters, land managers, and landowners are considering how to prepare for future conditions and how to evaluate risks for particular sites.

This guide, a downloadable PDF, highlights key information that can be used during field visits or forest planning. The developers hope that the guide will help foresters consider climate change risks together with local site characteristics, and help people design adaptation actions that meet management goals.

The guide contains summary information from the larger Minnesota Forest Ecosystem Vulnerability Assessment and the Forest Adaptation Resources document.

Visit the tool's website for information on obtaining a laminated, spiral-bound copy of the guide.
