Effect of exclosure on dryland woody species restoration in northeastern Amhara, Ethiopia

Abstract In Ethiopia, among many restoration efforts to reverse deforestation and land degradation, area exclosure is one of the most common practices to restore secondary forests with assisted natural regeneration. The present study in the Sekota district, northeastern Amhara region, Ethiopia evaluated the influence of areas exclosures on woody species diversity, population st...

The economic reality of the forest and fuel management deficit on a fire prone western US national forest

Recent extreme wildfire seasons in the United States (US) have rekindled policy debates about the underlying drivers and potential role forest management can play in reducing fuels and future wildfire. Most US western national forests face a substantial backlog of treatments and manifold management issues related to wildfire, forest health, and wildfire protection and constitute the major part of ...

Planning for future fire: Scenario analysis of an accelerated fuel reduction plan for the western United States

Recent fire seasons brought a new fire reality to the western US, and motivated federal agencies to explore scenarios for augmenting current fuel management and forest restoration in areas where fires might threaten critical resources and developed areas. To support this effort, we modeled the scheduling of an accelerated forest and fuel management scenario on 76 western US national forests. Speci...

SpruceSEA pilot project for climate change adapted seedlings

A new pilot project “SpruceSEA” aims to transfer forest seedlings adapted to climate change more quickly to forest companies than traditional breeding approaches. SpruceSEA stands for Spruce Somatic Embryogenesis Application Austria. The Austrian Research Centre for Forests (BFW) has teamed up with Austrian forest plant producer LIECO and Swedish biotech company SweTree Technologies for this p...

The Private Sector Takes a Stand for Oceans During Climate Week

Climate Week in New York City started out with a clear message: The time for talking has passed; put your words into action. Climate action comes in many forms - policy change, investments in ecosystem restoration, clean technology innovation and much more. Oceans, increasingly under threat from melting glaciers and coral bleaching, are another big blue opportunity for action sitting right under o...

Could a major restoration initiative in Africa nearly double the area occupied by conflict-causing tree plantations?

By Oliver Munnion, Global Forest Coalition. Originally published on The African Forest Landscape Restoration Initiative (AFR100) wants 100 billion dollars to help finance the restoration of degraded landscapes across the continent, in an effort to restore forests and suck carbon out of the atmosphere. Today, on International Day of Struggle Against Monoculture Tree Plan...

Restoration of Citropsis articulata, a Species at Risk from Medicinal Overharvesting in a Ugandan Rainforest Reserve

Citropsis articulata, the African cherry orange, is considered to be threatened in Ugandan forests as a result of its purported aphrodisiac properties. This study, part of an ongoing effort to address restoration needs of Mabira Central Forest Reserve in Uganda, demonstrates the feasibility of restoring depleted C. articulata populations using seedlings transplanted from nursery-grown seeds. Pheno...

Assessing the effectiveness of riparian restoration projects using Landsat and precipitation data from the cloud-computing application

Riparian vegetation along streams provides a suite of ecosystem services in rangelands and thus is the target of restoration when degraded by over-grazing, erosion, incision, or other disturbances. Assessments of restoration effectiveness depend on defensible monitoring data, which can be both expensive and difficult to collect. We present a method and case study to evaluate the effectiveness of r...
