Forest Impacts of Climate Change: Monitoring Indicators

Physical Damage to Trees

As storms increase in frequency and severity across the region, physical damage to trees will likely be impacted and is therefore a good indicator of the impacts of climate change.

Protocols for Monitoring Physical Damage to Trees

There are 6 protocols that are used to monitor the indicator: Physical Damage to Trees. The first three studies on the list below are the most common methods of monitoring in the Northeast region.

Key Metrics for Monitoring Physical Damage to Trees
