"Invasive species are a major forest health threat in North America, costing federal, state, and local governments billions of dollars annually for monitoring, management, and mitigation of impacts. Landowners are often negatively affected when forest ecosystems are changed and they lose valuable trees to invasive pests. Human-mediated movement of invasive species is a common method in which pests travel long distances. Using data from a national survey of U.S. citizens, this webinar will discuss people's attitudes and knowledge towards invasive species and the relationship with firewood. We will consider these data, and the common perceptions of individuals who routinely frequent the outdoors, in the broader context of forest health."
