CSANR has supported a limited amount of forestry research and educational activity, focused primarily on family forest landownership, agroforestry, and ecosystem level interactions between forests, rangelands, water and crop land.

  • Family Forest Owners and Climate Change: Understanding, Attitudes, and Educational Needs

  • How family forest landowners in the Pacific Northwest perceive climate change

    Private forest landowners in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere face the same challenges as public land managers with regard to changing forest conditions. However, little is known regarding the understanding family forest landowners have about climate change and the potential impacts on how they manage their forests. Consequently, the degree to which private landowners are prepared to respond effectively is unknown. To make sure new research and extension programming related to climate change and western forests is as useful as possible for family forest owners, researchers at three universities conducted a needs assessment in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington to determine family forest owners’ perceptions, understanding, and educational needs regarding the impact of climate change on their forests. The Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Idaho reports are linked here, as well as an executive summary of the Idaho report.
