NWPCA Joins The Coalition Against Forest Pests
Joint Letter to Budget Chairs Urges Continued Funding for Tree and Wood Pests
NWPCA joined with other trade associations and organizations in signing a letter addressed to Budget Conference Co-Chair Paul Ryan and Budget Conference Vice-Chair Patty Murray, urging them to maintain funding for the “Tree and Wood Pests” and “Specialty Crops” budget lines under the USDA APHIS Plant Health program. This program supports eradication and control efforts targeting the Asian longhorned beetle, sudden oak death pathogen, emerald ash borer, and other damaging pests. Equally important is maintaining funding for the Forest Service Forest Health Management (FHM) Program. The Forest Service Research Program provides the scientific foundation for developing effective tools to detect and manage forest pests and the pathways by which they are introduced and spread. Read the Coalition letter.
