Annual Report Assesses the State of U.S. Forest Health


2016_FHM_report.jpgForest managers, scientists, and decisionmakers rely on annual assessments of threats facing the nation’s forests. The Southern Research Station recently published the 2016 Forest Health Monitoring report--the 16th in this annual series, which is sponsored by the Forest Service Forest Health Monitoring program. "This report is a valuable resource for everyone who cares about the big picture of forest health across the United States,” says Kevin Potter, who co-edited the report with Barbara Conkling. Both are North Carolina State University scientists who cooperate with the Eastern Threat Center. Scientists from across the Forest Service as well as university researchers, state partners, and many other experts contribute to the annual report, which includes forest health assessments from the continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii. The report also summarizes the status and trends of a variety of forest health indicators from a national or regional perspective. View the report and read more in CompassLive...
