Forest Health Monitoring National Technical Reports
The Forest Health Monitoring (FHM) Program is a long-term, national research and monitoring effort focusing on forest ecosystems. This is an interagency program designed to assist resource managers and policy makers in managing forest resources in the United States, allocating funds for research and development, and evaluating the effectiveness of environmental policies. The FHM National Office is responsible for an annual technical report that provides analysis and synthesis of technical information at the National level as well as other annual and special publications that provide information of National forest health conditions and management priorities.
Cooperating scientists from North Carolina State University's Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources work with EFETAC staff to provide skills in statistical design and analysis including geographic information systems, model use and development, graphics, technical writing and editing, and results presentation and communication. This joint research venture addresses the annual technical report as well as several other research, analysis, and reporting tasks.
