Forest health is influenced by both natural disturbance agents and human activities, such as fire suppression, introduction of alien pests, and air pollution. An understanding of both influences is essential in creating a forest management plan, regardless of whether its objective is timber production, wildlife conservation, or wilderness management. Modern forest managers have thus adopted an integrative approach, embracing the concept of ecosystem management. Forest Health and Protection is the first book that integrates fire, wind, insects, and diseases as well as their interactions. Its comprehensive approach focuses on technical issues related to forest protection, including ecology, forest health, and ecosystem management. Useful examples from the United States, Canada, and other countries illustrate principles and problems essential to understanding these issues.
