The national Forest Health Monitoring ( FHM) Program of the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, has provided a means to address important forest tree disease conditions that continue to threaten the survival and prevalence of valuable tree species. A range of Evaluation Monitoring (EM) projects has been conducted related to native and introduced diseases in the Eastern United States. The topics include various forest declines such as hickory, basswood, oak, northern white cedar, ash, and black ash; forest health conditions in the Allegheny and Ozark forests; Eastern dwarf mistletoe damage; butternut resource viability and canker progression; and beech bark disease impact, extent, and host resistance. The projects relating to beech bark disease and butternut canker have helped to provide information to evaluate the continued impact of these long-time established pathogens.
