Stressors of Trees: forest management for health and productivity. Environmental, physical, and biological stress is common in forests and woodlands. Some stressor are natural, while others are caused by human activity. Trees can manage some stress, but exhibit decline and death as stressors begin to compound in number or are prolonged in duration. Learn about the types of disturbance, general symptoms that assess their significance, and how to manage (and not manage) forests to reduce the impacts of stress on tree health and productivity.
