DescriptionThe Central Hardwood Region (CHR) is one of the largest forested areas in the country, covering more than 100 million acres, and is dominated by oakhickory and mixed hardwoods. Although large areas of forest have been cleared to make way for agriculture and urban growth, the number of trees in the CHR is increasing as farm and pasture lands are reverting back to forest. In fact, more than 2.6 million acres of forest trees were planted on public and private land in 1999, with nearly half of these acres planted by private landowners (AF and PA 2001). Whether these trees were planted for timber production, wildlife habitat, riparian buffers, woodland protection, watershed restoration, windbreaks, or for conservation, the health of these trees is threatened by a litany of indigenous and invasive insect pests.
