Upcoming Events

The WICCI Forestry Working Group is holding three Forestry Roundtables around the state in April 2016. Participants in these one-day sessions will:

  • learn about climate change risks to forests and real-world adaptation examples from Wisconsin foresters
  • tell us about what would help you address climate change in your own work
  • share how you’re thinking about climate risk and taking action to prepare

Register for the workshops by March 28, 2016 on the online registration form.

Climate change is a game-changing issue for Wisconsin’s forests, and we all have a stake in maintaining their health and sustainability. The WICCI Forestry Working Group shares information about climate change impacts and adaptation across the forestry community. We help put information into action by helping foresters and land managers adapt and prepare for future change.

The following people have helped develop the vision for the Forestry Working Group. It’s an open group, and we’re looking for more people to be involved!

  • Stephen Handler, USDA Forest Serbice
  • Matt Dallman, The Nature Conservancy
  • Mike Dahlby, Chippewa County
  • Brad Hutnik, Wisconsin DNR
  • Linda Parker, USDA Forest Service
  • Kris Tiles, UW-Extension

Get Involved!

The Forestry Working Group needs your help to help share information, develop useful tools, and build adaptation thinking into real-world management and planning.

We have a draft work plan for our work in 2016 – take a look, send us comments and new ideas, or let us know how you’d like to help!
