Estimated reading time: 5 minutes As the climate changes over the 21st century, the Puget Sound region’s urban forest will be affected by changing temperatures and precipitation regimes, leading to implications for the people who depend on its ecosystem services.
Forests across the United States are expected to undergo numerous changes in response to the changing climate. The Forest Adaptation Menu of Strategies and Approaches provides a collection of resources designed to help forest managers incorporate climate change considerations into management and devise adaptation tactics. Effects from Climate Change Climate change will affect forests as they experience:

Northern hardwood forests are already being affected by climate change, which creates challenges for sustaining ecological, economic, and cultural benefits that these forests provide. There are many adaptation management actions that can address these key challenges. Adaptation actions are informed by site-specific conditions, including historical land-use legacies, and local manager knowledge and expertise.

Estimated reading time: 7 minutes The rangelands of the inland Northwest extend from the east side of the Cascade Range in Oregon and Washington to the Snake River Plain of southern Idaho. They are primarily made up of sagebrush and bunchgrass steppe and shrublands. Wildfire is a natural disturbance in rangelands. However, climate change, invasive annual grasses, and human activities are increasing the frequency, severity, and size of wildfires. These changes threaten human safety and infrastructure, natural resources, and wildlife habitat.
