Options for restoring forests degraded by invasive insects and diseases will be examined in the context of the goals of the forest manager, which may vary from restoration of ecosystem services to restoring the forest to its pre-invasion state. The value of genetics and the development of resistance breeding programs as a critical tool for restoration and maintaining healthy, resilient forests will be discussed with a focus on ongoing programs breeding for beech bark disease resistance in American beech and emerald ash borer resistance in North American ash species.
