If we stop importing wood from other continents and got our wood from local, well managed forests, we could avoid some future invasive species problems. And, with a strong forestry industry, we could harvest and dispose of the diseased trees.

but alas, too many people don't like forestry

Of course not all invasive species comes from imported wood- some comes from other plants imported for landscaping and horticultural purposes, or they might hitch a ride with any imported product.

As for the "other levels" I don't care much for globalization. I consider any corporation moving jobs overseas to be no less than traitors. I live in the rust belt of Massachusetts. Empty old brick factory buildings are everywhere.
