Abstract
  • The term "forest health" is being increasingly used in the context of forestry and natural resource management. For example, the term has been the subject of several articles in the JOURNAL oF FORESTRY and a recent Society of American Foresters task force report, Sustaining Long- 7•rm Forest Health and Productivity (Society of American Foresters 1993). "Forest health" is also increasingly used in government mandates concerning forest management. For instance, the Forest Ecosystems and Atmospheric Research Act of 1988 mandated surveys to monitor long-term trends in the health of forest ecosystems (Burkman and Hertel 1992). Moreover, forest health has emerged as a central objective for the desired future condition of forests; to some extent it replaces management for sustained commodity output (USDA Forest Service 1993a, Society of American Foresters 1993). Despite its widespread use, forest health is frequently used without a clear definition, making its application to forest management difficult.
