Fighting of Pine processionary pest through removing overwintering caterpillar nests from trees in the town of Korca
Fighting of Pine processionary pest through removing overwintering caterpillar nests from trees in the town of Korca
The pine moth (Thaumetopoea pityocampa), is a major pest of pine trees around the Mediterranean Sea. Defoliation damage is extremely serious in young reforested areas where it may lead to death of trees. In mature forests, trees are rarely killed but significant losses occur in volume growth. Treatment methods vary from mechanic to chemical and biologic. Most of the time a combination of all described methods provides most sustainable results.
This project will clean an area of 30 hectares with approximately 3,000 trees in the vicinity of the town of Korca. The cleaning process will consist in cutting of the caterpillar overwintering nests and subsequently destroying them.
