How can we protect our woods in a changing climate while also taking advantage of our forests as carbon sinks? This webinar will help answer these questions.
Stephen Handler, a climate change specialist with the USDA Forest Service, will discuss how you can factor climate change in forest management. He will also discuss tools to help evaluate your climate change risks.
Gabriel Burns, a climate change specialist for the MN DNR Division of Forestry, will talk about emerging carbon market opportunities for private forest landowners. He will discuss different incentive programs designed for landowners interested in improving forest health and provide an example of a landowner who benefited from enrolling their lands in an offset program.
