Abstract: Intially used for short-term impacts of gyspy moth on forest and to
refine hazard rating systems developed by Herrick and Gansner. Plots
were subsetted in 1986-subset was used to monitor long-term impacts
and stand recovery.

"Central Pennsylvania Risk Rating Plots" is a long-term dataset
monitoring gypsy moth defoliations. Plots monitored during 1978 to
1986 were located across Central Pennsylvania--roughly between State
College, Lewisburg, Harrisburg, and Lewistown, Pennsylvania. Plots
monitored during 1986 to 1993 were also located in Central
Pennsylvania--within the boundaries of Tuscarpra and Bald Eagle State
Forests. This area includes some of the most extensive and highest
quality oak forests in Pennsylvania.
