- Welcoming Remarks and Canadian Woodlands Forum Update.
Peter Robichaud, Canadian Woodlands Forum
- Climate Change in New Brunswick: Implications of Major Weather Events on Forest Operations. Brandon Love, Climate Change Secretariat
- Feature Presentation: The Vulnerability of Roads and Infrastructure in a Changing Climate. Mark Partington, FPInnovations
Forest roads are a critical component of Atlantic Canada’s forest management activities, community and recreational access, and tourism. Our climate has already experienced change and according to forecasts, we can expect that in the coming decades, damaging storms, exceeding what our roads can handle, will occur more often, will be stronger, and will last longer – not to mention the seasonal changes that will also occur, such as warmer winters and drier summers.
These changes are expected to have significant impacts on forest road management, such as restrictions on seasonal transportation schedules, increased demands on water crossing infrastructure, and decreased ability to utilize winter (frozen) roads. This presentation will discuss how climate change will impact forest roads, how to assess these risks and general approaches to implement adaptation options.
- Lightning Round: Updates on new technologies and products from our equipment suppliers.
- Climate Change Adaptation; Tools and Resources.
Susannah Banks, NB Federation of Woodlot Owners.
