Background

America’s forests provide ecological, social, and economic services to our Nation. An important aspect of maintaining and enhancing a healthy forest is to protect and restore forests from insects and diseases that cause high levels of tree decline and mortality.

The US Forest Service conducted the 2013-2027 National Insect and Disease Forest Risk Assessment to provide a nationwide summary of the potential susceptibility to tree mortality caused by major forest pests. Results for the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site are presented below to inform assessments of natural ecosystems and prioritize potential management for pest prevention, suppression, and restoration.

This advisory is designed to raise awareness about forest health concerns and provide common ground for consultation between NPS staff and forest health specialists. Impacts summarized below assume no active management during a 15-year (2013-2027) time frame.

What is at Risk and What are the Threats for Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site?

No areas within Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site were modeled as being susceptible to high levels (≥25%) of overall tree mortality. This may be due to the limited number of trees in the unit and/or the resolution of our data.
