Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication (MISC)

Description: No single measurement can summarize forest health. Instead, we need to look at a wide set of indicators which together serve as a reflection of existing conditions. Repeated monitoring of the forest over time allows us to identify trends in forest conditions and evaluate the effectiveness of our actions. Information about forest health is obtained in a variety of ways. The USDA Forest Service conducts a program of Forest Inventory and Analysis, which provides information in each state on rates of tree growth and death, harvesting, and changes in forest types and tree species. The Forest Service and state agencies conduct regular ground and aerial surveys of forest damage and the causal agents, both in permanent plots and in other forest areas. Universities, private industry, and environmental groups cooperate with governmental agencies on a variety of forest research projects.
