Effects of the Winter Moth on Growth and Mortality of Red Oak in Nova Scotia
Mortality, reduction of foliage, and loss of basal area increment of Quercus rubra L. were related quantitatively to defoliation by the winter moth, Operophtera brumata (L.). Repeated defoliation of some stands between 1958 and 1962 resulted in tree mortality as high as 40 percent of the stand. Survivors recovered their vigor after the outbreak subsided.
