MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation is out with a new book on how to respond to threats to the state’s forests from climate change.

Commissioner Michael Snyder says the book - developed by department staff - provides land managers with a menu of strategies to address climate change.

Topics covered include invasive plants, non-native insect invaders, and protection of connected forest tracts.

The book also covers specific evaluations of tree species vulnerability and adaptability, and offers forestry recommendations to buffer against climate disruptions.
