Description: Recent analysis of forest stand losses to gypsy moth has provided basic information for analyzing the relationship between forest site productivity and tree mortality on new frontiers of infestation. Poor timber-growing sites had the lowest rates of mortality. Oak mortality (number of trees) amounted to 18 percent on poor sites compared with 26 percent on medium and 28 percent on good sites.
