From ravenous gypsy moths to tree-choking kudzu, America's forests are under siege. That's the impression you'll get from a sprawling collection of forestry images hosted by the University of Georgia, Athens. Aimed at both researchers and managers, the 4200-image archive is packed with photos depicting pests, diseases, and forestry practices—from the intricate patterns made by bark beetles called engravers, to a controlled burn in Washington state. You can also find plenty of other forest denizens, such as deer and invasive shrubs like Chinese privet. A linked sister site offers fact sheets and other info on forest pests.
