Gypsy Moth in New Jersey Pine-Oak
Several pine-oak stands in southern New Jersey were defoliated by the gypsy moth, Lymantria dispar (L.). during both 1972 and 1973. Oaks were much more heavily defoliated than pines. Pinus rigida Mill. and P. echinata Mill. Radial growth among the oaks was sharply reduced during and immediately following the outbreak. Pine growth did not appear to be affected during the outbreak, and it increased sharply during the immediate three-year postoutbreak period.
