FOREST OWNERS AND GYPSY MOTHS
Dealing with infestation and mortality
Saturday, October 27, 9:30 a.m. – noon
Goodwin Forest Conservation Center, Hampton CT
Public Welcome!

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.  Topics include:
1.       Gypsy moth infestation & tree mortality – how much and where to date, what does the future likely hold?
2.      Forest management options in the wake of defoliation – visit sites with gypsy moth mortality and learn how foresters assess the level of damage, what we can do as landowners
3.       Economics – what are the market realities in a time of trade wars and excessive tree mortality?
Presenters include:
Dan Evans, Forester, CT DEEP Division of Forestry
Dick Raymond, Forester, CT DEEP Division of Forestry
Tom Worthley, Associate Extension Professor, University of Connecticut

Coffee and light refreshments will be provided.

RSVP’s are requested but not required; please e-mail Bill Reid at wbr655@yahoo.com or call 774-262-3284 for more information, or to let him know you’re attending.

Note that the forest is mostly level to slightly hilly and that we’ll be walking at least 1/2 mile.

Co-Sponsored by:
The Eastern Connecticut Forest Landowners Association/Wolf Den Land Trust
The Goodwin Forest Conservation Education Center
The Connecticut DEEP Division of Forestry
The UConn Cooperative Extension System

Directions: The Goodwin Center is located at 23 Potter Road, Hampton CT, just off State Route 6
