A single gypsy moth caterpillar can eat one square metre of leaves in a season. Repeated defoliation makes trees susceptible to other pests and diseases, and can eventually lead to tree death.


Defoliation in orchards can increase vulnerability to agricultural pests and
diseases and can negatively impact farm stock.

Loss of species in natural areas can affect biodiversity and forest wildlife.
