The Economic Impact of the 2016 Loma Fire

2017

Developed by Earth Economics and requested by the Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority (OSA), this report offers an assessment of the comprehensive economic impact of the 2016 Loma Fire that occurred in the Santa Cruz mountains of California. The report details the cost of lost ecosystem services, and the process of assessing these costs. Earth Economics also provides recommendations for mitigating future fire-related risk. The OSA requested this analysis in order to better understand the true costs of wildfire events, and how management practices and policies can be modified to reduce overall risk as climate change increases the incidence and intensity of wildfire events.

Central Appalachians Forest Ecosystem Vulnerability Assessment and Synthesis: A Report from the Central Appalachians Climate Change Response Framework Project

February 2015

Led by the U. S. Forest Service (USFS)’s Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science, this assessment evaluates the climate change vulnerability of forested ecosystems covering 18. 9 million acres in the Central Appalachian Broadleaf Forest-Coniferous Forest-Meadow and Eastern Broadleaf Forest Provinces of Ohio, West Virginia, and Maryland. Designed to be a resource for forest managers, the report summarizes the current state of forests in the region including threats and management trends, projected climate impacts, and the results of a climate vulnerability assessment of local tree species and forest ecosystems.
