Climate Change and Forest Health: Helping landowners with tough decisions

Landscapes in the intermountain west are becoming increasingly warmer, drier, and fragmented. Additionally, naturally-occurring wildfires are increasingly suppressed, eliminating the health benefits of these events. Such patterns and others have reduced the resilience of forests and given way to insect pest and disease outbreaks. Gallatin Valley Land Trust (GVLT) in Bozeman, Montana, has documented these changing conditions and is supporting landowners in addressing forest threats. GVLT provides information and expertise to private landowners about how to treat and prevent further outbreaks. They also help landowners identify financial resources to support the work of forest management. In a changing climate, proactively addressing these issues helps vegetation communities remain resilient, enhancing the conservation values of private land.
