Forest Health Monitoring Program Publications


National Technical Reports

The Forest Health Monitoring Program produces annual national technical reports that present forest status and trends from a national perspective, introduce new techniques for analyzing forest health data, and summarize results from recently completed Evaluation Monitoring projects funded through the FHM national program. Draft versions of recent FHM national reports are available here. When the final reports are released as General Technical Reports by the Southern Research Station, these draft versions will be removed and replaced with links to the final reports.
