The Arkansas Forestry Commission employs qualified personnel who provide technical assistance to landowners faced with insect and disease concerns. We encourage landowners and timberland managers who encounter forest health issues to contact your local forester or the forest health specialist in Little Rock.
Arkansas’s forests are periodically affected by damaging pests. AFC aims to maintain healthy, productive forest ecosystems by preventing, detecting, and suppressing damaging insects and diseases across all land ownerships. It is our goal to inform the public of potential forest health concerns and to notify stakeholders when their forest resource may be under risk.
