Description: Data on the impact of Nantucket pine tip moth, Rhyacionia frustrana, attack on the height of loblolly pine, Pinus taeda, in the first three growing seasons after planting from three locations in eastern North Carolina (U.S.A.) was used to develop multiple linear regression models relating tree height to tip moth infestation level in each growing season. These models were used to demonstrate which tip moth generations cause significant damage to the tree, thus facilitating the identification of generations that are good candidates for tip moth control. The height impact models were also used to calibrate a pine growth model to estimate volume loss associated with tip moth attack. Lastly, an example of how to use the information on volume impact to economically evaluate a potential pine tip moth control program is presented.
