The Taskforce on Adapting Forests to Climate Change (TAFCC) is a group of scientists and land managers that are particularly interested in understanding the potential effects of climate change on natural and planted forests in the western U.S. Key questions include: 1) How will climate change affect the physiology and development of western tree species? 2) How will climate change affect the health and productivity of natural and planted forests? 3) To what extent should forest management activities be altered in response to climate change?
An overarching goal of this group is to consider these questions in relation to forest tree genetics, tree breeding, and silviculture.
