      The assessment of forest health and tree growth is commonly carried through data collection by forest inventories and monitoring programs like the International Co-operative Program on assessment and monitoring of air pollution effects on forests. 17 The main drawback of these methods, based on field plot sampling approach, is the low spatial. Often times, a vegetation indicator is used to measure and monitor the type, abundance, and vertical position of vascular plant species. Changes in species abundance and forest vertical structure, as well as changes in trends in plant species richness, can be a very useful indicator of forest health .

The health and sustainability of United States forests have been monitored for many years from several different perspectives. The national Forest Health Monitoring (FHM) Program was established in by Federal and State agencies to develop a national system for monitoring and reporting on the status and trends of forest ecosystem by: 1.

"The new book, Forest health: an integrated perspective, edited by John Castello and Stephen Teale, is a terrific new contribution to forest health science. Essentially, I see this book as forest health for ecologists. It is loaded with great information and well referenced. " David C.

Forest Health Protection, a part of State and Private Forestry, has over specialists in the areas of forest entomology, forest pathology, invasive plants, pesticide use, survey and monitoring, suppression and control, assessment, and applied provides forest health-related services to protect the forests from insects, disease, and invasive species.

Forest health monitoring programs have potential in many respects. While they were started in relation to air pollution and within that framework as a contribution to international conventions and legal mandates, now the area for application is much broader.

A first advance was to place more emphasis on traditional damaging agents. The annual national technical report of the Forest Health Monitoring Program of the Forest Service, U.

SUMMARY: The research joint venture agreement supporting this work includes the Forest Health Monitoring (FHM) Program annual national reports as well as several other research, analysis and reporting tasks as primary responsibilities.

The FHM Program of the U. Forest Service is a longterm, national research and monitoring effort focusing. NDVI, a good proxy for forest health and productivity monitoring, was obtained for the period using Landsat-5 TM and Landsat-7 ETM imagery. TM values were adjusted to those of ETM, after a comparison of site-specific and literature linear equations.

The Division of Forest Health Monitoring was established in to protect the forest, shade and ornamental tree resources of the state from significant insect and disease damage and to provide pest management and damage prevention for homeowners, municipalities, and forest land owners and managers, thereby preserving the overall health of Maine's forest resources ().

Forest Health Monitoring Program Initiated in to provide information on the status, changes, and trends in forest health and sustainability. The FHM program provides information on all forest lands to land-managers and policy makers that affects, directly or indirectly, all Americans.

The book introduces the role of forests in providing ecosystem services and the need for monitoring their change over time, followed by an overview of the use of earth observation data to support forest monitoring. It discusses general methodological differences, including wall-to-wall mapping and sampling approaches, as well as data availability.

The inventory and monitoring section describes meth-ods of determining production, composition, and uti-lization.

The evaluating and rating of ecological sites section gives procedures for determining trend and similarity index and evaluating rangeland health attri-butes on rangelands and forage value ratings on grazed forest lands. information on, and monitoring of, forest health conditions across the State. Where forest health problems exist, the State must provide information, coordinate mitigation programs and pest control activities, and provide technical assistance to forest practitioners, landowners, and land.

Namely, these requirements are: (1) understanding the effects of multiple stressors on forest health; (2) using remote sensing (RS) approaches to monitor forest health; (3) coupling different monitoring approaches; (4) using data science as a bridge between complex and multidimensional big forest health (FH) data; and (5) a future multi-source.

The Delaware River Basin: Collaborative Environmental Research and Monitoring In the USDA Forest Service, the U. Geological Survey, and the National Park Service formed the Collaborative Environmental Monitoring and Research Initiative (CEMRI) to test strategies for integrated environmental monitoring among the agencies.

To address the need for more effective methods for evaluating and assessing forest ecosystem health, the USDA-Forest Service and the US Environmental Protection Agency through its Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program developed the Forest Health Monitoring program.

The program was initiated in and by was present in the major areas of the United States. This paper Cited by: The Forest Health Watch Program is a co-produced initiative to facilitate research and education about the health of urban and rural forests in the Pacific Northwest.

FHM plot measurements began in New England in The program expanded the next year to include some Mid-Atlantic and Southern states, and, thereafter, more states were steadily added each year (see for details on FHM plot work). The original forest health indicators included: crown condition, tree damage, and.

"Actual conflict over forest resources and forest land is increasing in Cambodia and the rate of increase appears likely to accelerate," said a USAID report on Cambodia's forest resources.As NETN’s Plant Ecologist, I have spent that past 10 years monitoring forest health in national parks across the eastern U.S.

Forest conditions for Network parks vary from site to site, but a general rule of thumb is that more northerly parks tend to be in better condition and suffer less from regional stressors.

The overall good news for all.
