January / February Feature - Looking to the Future

In the heart of winter, we have time for making resolutions, looking ahead and planning for future outcomes. But is there a way to make the future less misty and undefined? At the Northern Research Station, scientists are exploring techniques that can aid natural resource professionals in how they think about the future as well as developing tools that resource managers can use to anticipate forest health and manage for a sustainable future. In the months of January and February, we feature a scientist, research, a product and partnership all focused on helping managers plan for an array of possible future forest scenarios.
