Forest Service National Strategic Framework for Invasive Species Management (2013)

USDA. FS. Forest Health Protection.

This Forest Service National Strategic Framework for Invasive Species Management (Framework) prioritizes and guides the prevention, detection, and control of invasive insects, pathogens, plants, wildlife, and fish that threaten our Nation's terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. This Framework (Aug 2013) supersedes the agency's 2004 Invasive Species Strategy and Implementation Plan. The Framework responds to a 2010 USDA Office of Inspector General audit of Forest Service invasive species programs by providing a consistent, agency-wide approach to the prevention, detection, and control of invasive species.
