Reforestation Strategies for the Southern Sierra Nevada

June 14, 2022

Free

Join the USDA California Climate Hub, U.S. Forest Service Region 5 and Pacific Southwest Research Station, and the Sierra Nevada Conservancy for a Science and Management Symposium on: Reforestation Strategies for the Southern Sierra Nevada in an Era of Climate Change.

California has entered a new era of fire and climate change effects, which are particularly evident in the southern Sierra. In the past decade alone, the region has experienced extensive tree mortality, severe drought, a bark beetle epidemic, and large and severeĀ  wildfires. This demands that researchers and managers approach and implement reforestation differently.

The symposium will provide a forum for managers and researchers to share findings and experiences from operating in this new era of fire and climate effects in the southern Sierra. The symposium will consider how managers can approach post-fire reforestation in different areas of a burned landscape and how innovation in management can improve both efficiency and success toward desired conditions.
