Forest Health

A healthy forest has the capacity for self renewal of its ecological productivity, diversity, complexity and resiliency. Forest health programs protect these functions by monitoring insects and diseases, tree condition, and other ecosystem features; providing information and technical assistance; and managing forest pests through prevention, early detection, and integrated management.
