This workshop series aimed to engage forest managers in co-developing management strategies that help manage tree regeneration and fuels, and adapt to climate change impacts in post-fire environments. These efforts were designed to inform and learn from forest managers across various sectors in the Northern Rockies region, and to produce useable materials to facilitate post-fire management. The workshop flyer has additional details on specific topics that were covered.
The workshop presenters, Penny Morgan, Camille Steven-Rumann and Jarod Blades, synthesized the science on the implications of a changing climate on post-fire tree regeneration and fuels, drawing upon meta-analysis of observed post-fire tree regeneration, or lack of it, as influenced by burn severity and climate across 52 fires within mixed-conifer forests of the Rockies. They incorporated tree regeneration data, post-fire fuels data, and projected climate of the next 40 years into strategies developed with managers.
