USFS Climate Gallery - Climate Change and Adaptation: New England and Northern New York Forests StoryMap

This StoryMap summarizes the best available knowledge related to climate change about the New England and Northern New York forests from published research and local knowledge.

Forests cover more than 40 million acres across New England and northern New York, from the coast of the Atlantic Ocean to the peaks of the Appalachian Mountains. These forests deliver many benefits to people of this region, including clean air and water, fish and wildlife, and places for families to spend time outdoors. Working forests also give us lumber, maple syrup, and other products that support the local economy. 

Foresters, biologists, and land managers are working hard to preserve these forests for future generations, as part of the New England Climate Change Response Framework. Understanding how our forests are changing now and how they will continue to change in the future is the key to making smart choices.
