Forest Owners and Gypsy Moths: Dealing with Infestation and Mortality
Here in eastern Connecticut, gypsy moth defoliations over the past 3 years have been the most damaging in over 30 years. Many forest owners have suffered significant tree mortality. This program will examine past damage, present conditions and what the future may hold. Note that the forest at Goodwin is mostly level to slightly hilly, we will be walking over ½-mile, and ground conditions might be wet following a rainy spring.
Co-Sponsored by: The Eastern Connecticut Forest Landowners Association/Wolf Den Land Trust, James L. Goodwin State Forest and Conservation Center, Connecticut DEEP Division of Forestry, and The UConn Cooperative Extension System.
This event is jointly sponsored by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA), Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) Division of Parks, and Friends of Goodwin Forest.
The James L. Goodwin Forest and Conservation Center were gifts to the people of Connecticut from James L. Goodwin, one of America's first professional foresters and a long-time CFPA Board Member. The Center is jointly managed by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA) and the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) Division of Parks.
