Forestry Roundtables

The WICCI Forestry Working Group held three roundtable discussions around the state in April 2016. Folks from across the forestry community had great discussions about their priorities and needs related to climate change. We’re going to use this information to steer our work going forward. If you’d like to get a summary of the roundtables or access any of the materials, please see the list of resources below:

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 Service
  • Matt Dallman, The Nature Conservancy
  • Jason Holmes, Bayfield 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!
