Title: Protecting your forest asset: managing risks in changing times

Author: Jennings, Lisa; Boby, Leslie; Hubbard, Bill; Megalos, Mark

Date: 2013

Source: Technology Bulletin SREF-FM-018. Southern Regional Extension Forestry 1-8.

Publication Series: Journal/Magazine Article (JRNL)

Description: Private forest owners control most of the southern forest resource and are critical to maintaining forest health in the South. Record droughts, rising temperatures, increased frequency and intensity of wildfires, insect and plant invasions, and more intense storm events all pose threats to the health of Southern forests. Scientists project that increases in temperature and changes in rainfall patterns will cause these disturbances to become more common, occurring with greater intensity or duration. This pamphlet reviews healthy forest strategies and approaches to decrease the risks associated with these disturbances on your forestland.
