Climate change adaptation: Federal and Provincial forest researchers consider science and policy needs for the future: Climate change scenarios suggest that Canadian forests will face significant changes in coming decades; however, the uncertainties inherent in climate change projections challenge the ability of resource managers to confidently predict how forests will function in the future.

GLFC Researchers influence Forest Management Policy: The White River Riparian Harvesting Impacts Project (WRRHIP) is turning heads within Canada's forestry sector. In July 2007, Great Lakes Forestry Centre researchers Dave Kreutzweiser and Steve Holmes led a two-day field tour of the research site where they are examining partial harvesting within riparian areas of boreal forest streams.

Is it worthwhile to plant trees for wood and carbon values in southern Ontario?: Denys Yemshanov, Daniel McKenney, Saul Fraleigh and Steve D'Eon, all of the Canadian Forest Service, recently published a paper that examined the financial attractiveness of plantations of three different species across southern Ontario. Three species, red pine(__Picea abies L._) and black walnut (Juglans nigra L.), were selected because they represent the different choices that typically face landowners in the south.
