Weiskittel co-authors new study on shifts in forest density

Aaron WeiskittelA new study of trends in tree-size density in the United States over the past two decades could assist scientists, managers and policymakers in decision-making related to future forest carbon trajectories, land use planning, potential risks to disturbance, and strategies to increase resilience of U.S. forests in global change.

The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, was co-authored by USDA Forest Service research forester Chris Woodall and UMaine professor Aaron Weiskittel, who directs the Center for Research on Sustainable Forests and is a Mitchell Center faculty fellow.
