It does have an important impact on forestry, including economic, environmental, ecological and social. Here, I summarize the current situation of the occurrence and development of North American pinewood nematode disease, and combine Chinese practices in pinewood nematode control to propose considerations from five aspects: 1) laws, 2) national department, 3) scientific research, 4) technology promotion and application, and 5) Science popularization and public education, but also in terms of scientific and technological support, technology promotion and application, scientific popularization, and public education to consider the management strategy of pinewood nematode disease in China.
