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:

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.

Pigs are not native to the Americas, they originated in southeast Asia and from there expanded their range through Eurasia and North Africa1. Humans are responsible for introducing pigs everywhere else. In what is now the United States, pigs were first introduced by Polynesian settlers on the Hawaiian Islands 800 - 1000 years ago. Domesticated pigs arrived on the mainland in the 16th century, brought by European explorers and settlers2.

How are forests vulnerable to climate change?The urban forest of the Chicago Wilderness region, a 7-million-acre area covering portions of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin, will face direct and indirect impacts from a changing climate over the 21st century. Understanding the potential impacts is an important first step to sustaining healthy forests in the face of changing conditions.
