Changing Climate, Changing Forests: A Hubbard Brook Roundtable
What forest changes will have the greatest impact on local land managers and landowners?

  • Identify forest changes that are and will have the greatest impact on local landowners and managers.
  • Map out the points of overlap between Hubbard Brook research and the issues, concerns, and decisions faced by forest landowners and land managers: What science is available now to support decision-making at the landowner level? How can forest research respond to landowner needs in the future?
  • Build new relationships and channels of communication among scientists and landowners with the intention of broadening our dialogue beyond a one-day meeting.
