Forest Benefits


The Forest Health program helps maintain and improve the health of Oregon's private and state-owned forests.




Our forest health professionals conduct aerial and ground surveys to monitor forest insects and tree diseases. They provide technical advice and training in the use of integrated pest management principles to help professional foresters and landowners meet their management goals and objectives​.

Stewardship Foresters, urban foresters, forest entomoligists and pathologists can help landowners identify forest pest problems and develop strategies to manage pests.​ Contact a Stewardship Forester or the Forest Health program for more information or assistance.
