Tree mortality is a key process that shapes forest populations. Recent studies have documented rapid increases in background forest mortality rates and greater incidence of large-scale (catastrophic) forest die-back, patterns associated with drought. Simultaneously, fire activity across much of western North America is increasing in size, frequency and severity. Learn about what this means for the future of our forests behind the redwood curtain and beyond.
