    Description

    Some recent literature suggests that thinning should not be conducted immediately prior to, during, or immediately following an outbreak of defoliating insects. Although the individual effects of both defoliation and thinning are well documented in the literature, no study has assessed the combined effect of these two stressors. An outbreak of forest tent caterpillar, Malacosoma disstria Hbn., in the Tug Hill region of New York from 1990 to 1993 afforded the opportunity to assess the combined effects using a 2x2 factorial design.
