The maintenance of the health of Canada's forest ecosystems is an important prerequisite to national and global forest sustainability. Remedial and preventative strategies formulated to address forest health must consider as a key factor the potential effects of atmospheric pollution, particularly acid rain, on forests. This assessment reviews findings, highlights current trends, provides direction to strengthen national programs aimed at addressing acid rain issues, and focuses on the links between science and policy.
