The Western North Carolina Report Card on Forest Sustainability is a collaboration between the US Forest Service’s Southern Research Station (SRS) and UNC Asheville’s National Environmental Modeling and Analysis Center (NEMAC). The Report Card is aimed at local and regional decision makers and demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of economic, ecological, biological, and social information relevant to forest sustainability in the region. By evaluating how forests are being impacted by natural and man-made change, decision making processes and policies informed by the Report Card can ensure that desired values are protected. The project currently focuses on eighteen counties in Western North Carolina (WNC).
