Abstract

The purpose of this report is to describe how yesterday's trends and today's choices might change the future forest landscape of the Northern United States from 2010 (the baseline year) to 2060. Its results are intended to help resource managers and policy makers identify actions that will sustain the health, productivity, diversity, and resilience of these forests, which provide for the well-being of the 125 million people who currently live in the 20 Northern States and for 32 million additional people expected by 2060.
