Preferred Term:

forest decline

A complex disorder involving abiotic and biotic stresses on a forest stand that results in a slow, progressive decrease in growth with loss of health and vigor. Mortality is common. However, affected trees may recover once the stresses are removed. Natural factors (hurricanes, floods, fires, drought, pests, etc.) as well as human activity (deforestation and forest degradation) are involved.
