Sound economic assessments of damages caused by exotic invasive species provide a basis to determine whether management programs should be established, modified, or discontinued. Few analyses have attempted to carefully quantify those damages, especially for forest pests. Oak wilt is the most significant disease of oaks (Quercus spp) in the north central United States and is caused by a nonnative fungus, Ceratocystis fagacearum.
