    Description

    The 2013–2027 National Insect and Disease Forest Risk Assessment represents a nationwide strategic assessment of the hazard of tree mortality due to insects and diseases displayed as a series of maps, the National Insect and Disease Risk Maps (NIDRM) (Krist and others 2014) (­gs. 6.1, 6.2, and 6.3). Risk, or more appropriately termed, hazard, is de­ned in the assessment as the expectation that, without remediation, at least 25 percent of standing live basal area >1 inch in diameter will die over a 15-year time frame (2013–27) due to insects and diseases.
