Description: This report documents trends and impacts of climate change on America's forests as required by the Renewable Resources Planning Act of 1974. Recent research on the impact of climate and elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide on plant productivity is synthesized. Modeling analyses explore the potential impact of climate changes on forests, wood products, and carbon in the United States.
Keywords: forest productivity, vegetation change, carbon sequestration, mitigation, forest sector, timber inventory, soil carbon, carbon accounting, afforestation, deforestation
