This reports promotes a study from the United States that brought together scientific experts and forestry managers to ascertain some general adaptation strategies for the future. It indicates that adapting to climate change is essential to the sustainable management of forestry but the adaptation needs to be grounded in current scientific knowledge. Furthermore, the European Commission suggests preparing forests for climate change by mainstreaming adaptation into national and European policies. The US focus group approach is not only transferable to an EU context but the adaptation strategies generated from the workshop are informative.
