The Effects of Climate Change on our Forests

Changing climate has the potential to complicate forest management, but how? Shifting of weather patterns may already be occurring, and within the next 50 years or so, climate models and local experience to date suggest these trends: warmer and wetter winters (lower snow pack at high elevations), hotter and drier growing season, and increased extreme weather events... drought. However, will increased CO2 improve plant performance? Well, although we don't have all the answers, this presentation attempts to summarize how this may influence our major trees and forest pests and pathogens.
Lecture presented by Dr. Dave Shaw, OSU Extension Forest Health Specialist & Professor.
