The Opportunity for Silvicultural Control of Gypsy Moth in Southwestern Maine
Abstract:A survey involving 1,255,000 acres of forest in southwestern Maine emphasizes the value of silvicultnral measures to render the forest more resistant to gypsy moth attack. Woodland owners should be encouraged to take advantage of prospective difficulties in the distribution of coal and oil to improve their woodland by the marketing of cordwood. Protection from gypsy moth provides an added incentive for the application of good forestry practice.
