Abstract: The Canopy Health Monitoring (CanHeMon) project ran at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission from mid-2015 to mid-2018 and was funded by DG SANTE. Its aim was to develop and implement remote-sensing based monitoring of a section of the Pine Wood Nematode buffer zone to support the measures against this quarantine plant pest there, and particularly the detection of pine trees in poor health. This report describes the main findings from the project, which achieved the detection of ca. 19 000 individual declining coniferous trees through remote sensing, and an outlook on the potential future use of remote sensing in support of plant health measures.
