Description: In 1990, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency launched a cooperative program, Forest Health Monitoring, to monitor the health of the Nation's forests. Several indicators of forest health have been measured on permanent plots in 14 States. Data gathered from Alabama, Georgia, and Virginia in 1992 are summarized in this report. Simple percentage distributions of crown ratings and damage data from sample plots do not suggest any widespread problems in these States. Crown ratings were poor for only 1 percent of the sample trees. A synopsis of forest insect and disease surveys in the southern region shows that these pests continue to cause substantial damage.

Keywords: detection monitoring, forest damage assessment, visual crown ratings
