Landowners around the region are seeing increased pressure from threats like fire, insects, disease, extreme weather, and drought on their land and resources. The last decade has brought record droughts to the southeastern US, increasing wildfires, expanding insect and plant invasions, and resulting more intense hurricane and tornado events. Scientists predict increases in temperature and changes in rainfall patterns that can make these threats occur more often, with more intensity, or for longer duration. However, there are land management strategies that can be used to decrease the risk from these threats.
Our land management feed highlights adaptive management techniques for forests, cropland, grazing land, and livestock. This information reflects the current best available science for the Southeast.
