Description: In recent years the aspen research and management community has witnessed increasing accounts of unexplained aspen die-offs across the Rocky Mountain region. In response, two meetings were held to address the issue; this paper summarizes the most recent gathering, a symposium held in Fort Collins at the USDA Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, on February 12-13, 2008. This report presents a brief summary of workshop findings along with a synopsis of the state of aspen research in the western United States organized in the following subject categories: SAD case studies, research & methods, and aspen organizations. Abstracts of presentations made at the meeting are then presented in each of the above categories, followed by an email address where the corresponding author may be reached with questions or comments.

Keywords: Sudden Aspen Decline (SAD), Rocky Mountain region, aspen research
