Description: In terms of mortality caused by insects, defoliators are the most serious enemies of oaks at the present time. An oak leaf tier, Croesia semipurprana, is one of the principal defoliators of trees in the red oak group. Oak leaf rollers, primarily Archips semiferana, have been responsible for widespread mortality in white and chestnut oaks. Defoliation by the gypsy moth, Porthetria dispar, could become the major insect problem in the Appalachian Region and possibly throughout the Eastern United States. Economically, wood borers may be the most important at present.
