Description: The Northern Forest Futures Project aims to reveal how today's trends and choices are likely to change the future forest landscape in the northeastern and midwestern United States. The research is focused on the 20-state quadrant bounded by Maine, Maryland, Missouri, and Minnesota. This area, which encompasses most of the Central Hardwood Forest region, is the most heavily forested and most densely populated region in the Nation (Shifley et al. 2012). The Northern Forest Futures Project adds detail and context (e.g., Bowker and Askew 2013, Cordell et al. 2012, U.S. Forest Service 2014) to national projections of forest conditions conducted as part of the recent Resources Planning Act assessment (U.S. Forest Service 2012). Analyses for northern forests explore projected conditions from 2010 to 2060 for seven scenarios with differing assumptions about changes in population, land use, harvest removals, and climate.
