On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Québec Society for the Protection of Plants, we will take a look at the ground covered by forest pathologists in this province. For each of them, we will discuss the highlights of their career. We separate this past century into three periods: that of the forerunners, followed by the golden age, which began with René Pomerleau and saw many forest pathologists emerge, and, finally, the period of turmoil we are currently experiencing. We will conclude with an outlook on the future, which may seem rather pessimistic. However, given the state of health of our forests, the future is actually quite promising.
