    Description

    A recent study of forest stand losses to gypsy moth has provided basic information for evaluating the benefits of control on new frontiers of infestation. Protecting highly susceptible trees from impending attack can prevent a potential loss of 15 percent in their timber value and 2.8 percent in their compound rate of value growth.
