USDA Forest Service, Forest Health Protection

This photo collection spans over 115 years of federal and state forest entomology, forest pathology, aerial forest insect and disease detection surveys, forest tree genetics, and invasive species management in the Pacific Northwest. While primarily focused on research, activities, and personnel in Oregon and Washington, many photos from other areas are also included. Spanning 1902-2018, the images form an extremely loose visual program history.

The observers then survey those portions of the drainage visible from the front and right hand...
