Description

This report on the major insect and disease conditions of the Nation’s forests represents the 63rd annual report prepared by the Forest Service, an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The report focuses on the 20 major insects and diseases that annually cause defoliation and mortality in forests of the United States.  This 2013 edition contains updated charts, tables, and maps, plus it provides a national summary of the major changes and status of these 20 forest pests.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR/AGENCY:
The Forest Health Protection program of the Forest Service and its State partners provide the information in this report. This program serves all Federal lands, including National Forest System lands, lands administered by the U.S. Departments of Defense and the Interior, and tribal lands.  The program also provides assistance to private landowners through State foresters and other State agencies. Key elements of the program are detecting and reporting insect and disease epidemics. State and USDA Forest Service program specialists regularly conduct detection and monitoring surveys.
