Description: A subset of Alaska's forests are surveyed annually by the Alaska Division of Forestry and US Forest Service Forest Health Protection specialists. However, surveys have been limited this year due to COVID-19. This presentation will describe recent reports of insect activity and forest disease across the region, provide information on how to report observations of forest health, and welcome any questions LEO members may have about forest conditions in their area.
