Status of Pesticide Registrations for Forestry

The status and number of pesticides registered and available for forestry uses is changing rapidly, especially for insecticides and fungicides. Several pesticides which were considered critical for some forest pest management programs are no longer available; others are still available but with significantly altered application rates, methods, reentry intervals, and use patterns. Additional registrations are currently under review and their future is difficult to predict. The processes that caused these changes are still in play, resulting in uncertainty regarding the availability of products in the future. There are opportunities for pest managers to play a critical role in maintaining registrations of forestry pesticides.
