Description: Over the last 100 years of human action there has been a correlated increase in the movement of insects and disease to the new world. Chestnut Blight, Dutch Elm Disease, Gypsy Moth, Butternut Canker, and White Pine Blister Rust are stern reminders of historically devastating exotic invasions. Sudden Oak Death, Asian Long-horned Beetle, Oak Wilt, Red Oak Borer, and Oak Decline should be considered credible threats to the Central Hardwood region. The potential danger posed by these pests will necessitate increased plant inspection and regulation to reduce the impact of their arrival, establishment, and spread. Advanced risk assessment and detection linked with sound forest practice to promote species diversity will reduce the impact of unwanted exotic introductions.
