Background Information

Not only does climate have a profound impact on forest health, but also, through their ability to sequester carbon, forests can have a substantial impact on climate. During the 2015 Rogue Basin Climate Summit, the Forests and Fire breakout group recommended the organization of a stakeholder workshop to explore ways of incorporating climate considerations into regional forest management.
