By definition, exotic forest pests are diseases or insects that are present outside of their natural range. They are described as "invasive" when they alter the ecosystems into which they are introduced. According to Canadian Forest Service (CFS) researchers, more than 80 exotic pests harmful to Canada's forests have become established here since 1882. This brochure describes the main exotic pests that are currently being studied at the Canadian Forest Service's Laurentian Forestry Centre (LFC).
