Forest Health

Healthy forests are ecologically functional and resilient to disturbance. They are valued by communities and have the capacity to produce economic benefits. 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.
