The US Forest Service Forest Health Protection (FHP) program has shared responsibility for monitoring and protecting the health of forest ecosystems in the Pacific Northwest. We provide technical and financial assistance to federal resource managers in Oregon and Washington regarding insects, diseases, and unwanted vegetation in forest ecosystems. Similar assistance is provided through state forestry staffs to state and private resource managers.
Forest Health Protection staff are located in 5 field offices and the Pacific Northwest Regional Office (Region 6) -- view their contact information.
