Managing forest risks in uncertain times of climate change

Key message

Managing forest risks in uncertain times of climate change necessitates novel and adaptive forest decision approaches. Multiple risks (biotic and abiotic) and sources of uncertainty should be identified, and their quantities over decision horizon should be propagated in searching for robust solutions. The solutions may ask for changes in classical forest decisions, e.g., rotation age or beyond, e.g., forest insurance.
