    Description

    The impact of the Nantucket pine tip moth, Rhyacionia frustrana (Comstock), has become of increasing concern as standard silvicultural practices have intensified in southern pine production. The associated silvicultural manipulations of site preparation, herbaceous weed control, release, bedding and fertilization have shortened rotation lengths and increased volume yields (Nowak and Berisford 2000), but have often elevated tip moth infestation levels (Nowak and Berisford 2000, Ross and others 1990). As a result, insecticide applications are now being considered as part of silvicultural prescriptions for intensively-managed pine plantations.
