From the preface:

"Health of forests is vital to maintaining the economic, and ecological productivity. It is essential to safeguard the health and vitality of forests, forest ecosystems and trees outside forests. Forest health management has always been looked upon as pests and diseases management, but in reality it encompasses an array of issues relating to abiotic disturbances, nutrition, soil health, pests, diseases and invasives. On most of the occasions, environment, nutrition and soil proved to be the prime factors responsible for occurrence and spread of major pests and diseases including invasives.

Forests are a dynamic ecosystem and succumb to threat when faced by disturbances and undesirable agents like pests, diseases, fre and weather damage. There is a limit to which a forest can recover from such disturbances. For effective management of forests, it is essential to understand the forest's ability to renew itself, or the ability to withstand disturbance and recover through time. There has been very little understanding in this crucial area of forest ecosystem health.

In this era of climate change and with the Green India Mission being taken up in a big way in the XII Five year plan where increase in tree cover is the major objective, there is a need to address the issue of forest health which could play an important role in deciding the future of our natural forests and plantations.

With a view to highlight the importance of the forest health management, sensitize forest managers and tree growers and encourage researchers to take up more studies relating to forest health management, the Institute organized the National Seminar on Forest health management during 21 – 22nd March, 2012. Deliberations on various aspects relating to forest health, importantly climate change, impact of forest policies, effects of deforestation, anthropogenic influences, impact of weeds on forest productivity, impact of invasive alien species, role of biofertilizers in tree nutrition, green technology for augmentation of soil health, integrated pest and disease management, agroforestry and community participation in forest health were discussed and debated at length by participants from state forest departments, forest corporations, wood based industries, forest research institutions, universities and colleges. The proceedings of the seminar have now been compiled. We are sure that these proceedings would serve as a reference material for policy makers, environmentalists, conservationists, forests managers, wood based industries, research institutions and individual tree growers and forestry researchers of the country."
