Abstract

The USDA Forest Service Research in partnership with State forestry agencies has initiated monitoring of 32 exotic plant tasa invading forests in the 13 southeastern States. The monitoring is on all forestlands, all ownerships, and is a recent addition to the National Forest Resources Inventory, ongoing since the 1930's. This is the first multi-state survey of esotic pest plants within the U.S., and other regions will be following this lead effort.
