Agents that cause disease are called pathogens, and so the fungi that are of interest to forest health are pathogenic fungi. The diseases are categorised according to the parts of the tree they most affect - namely, wood decay, root diseases and foliage diseases, or the symptoms they cause - rusts, cankers and wilts.

Methods of combatting fungal disease can be silvicultural (such as removing diseased trees, selecting resistant species, and choosing uneven-aged management), or control (chemical or biological) or a combination - integrated pest management.
