Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The gypsy moth is a serious threat to the hardwood forests of the eastern United States. Although chemical treatments currently exist which can be used to help control the impacts of the moth, silvicultural control measures are just now being proposed and tested. Felling and skidding cost estimates for harvesting merchantable timber under two such proposed silvicultural thinning treatments are reported. Costs for felling the nonmerchantable component of the thinnings in order to achieve treatment objectives are also discussed.

Keywords: Harvesting costs, productivity, gypsy moth
