Insect pests and pathogens, and climate change, each threaten forest health. But what happens when they are combined? Northeast CASC researchers with the Regional Invasive Species & Climate Change (RISCC) management team contributed to a new handout that outlines strategies for managing the combined impacts of pests and climate change on forests to help them transition to a state better adapted to our future climate.

This handout is a product to the Northeast CASC project, Regional Effort on Invasive Species and Climate Change (RISCC) Management
