Detecting future invasive pests on sentinel trees

    I am conducting a global analysis of a number of North American tree species and the insect pests and pathogens that have been found attacking them outside the trees’ native ranges. I would like to find forest inventory data for exotic trees over the years that I could use to know where “sentinel trees” could have been planted in the past, and as a predictor variable for the emergence and diversity of pest on exotic trees.

    What tree species are considered “exotic”? what is your geographic region?
