Insects and Disease

Introduction to Forest Insects and Disease

Forest pests and diseases are a natural part of a forest ecosystem. While most native pests or pathogens occur at low population or infection levels, there are times when they can become epidemic. Of particular concern is watching out for introduced pests and pathogens that can cause substantial problems. Forest management can influence habitat and survival of pests and pathogens.
