Forest Trip to Study Gypsy Moth Defoliation In an effort to show the effects of the gypsy moth on the George Washington National Forest, the Forest Service has planned a trip into the woods next month, and the public is invited. "We feel this trip is important to see how the effects of gypsy moth will affect the forest's long- range management plan," Forest Supervisor Wayne Kelley said. The George Washington staff, working with the public, is pre- paring a plan that will serve as a guide for managing the forest's more than 1. I million acres over the next I0 years. A draft envi- ronmental impact statement is due this fall. The tour will offer an up-close look at some of the 128,384 acres of defoliation this year; some of the 14,608 acres of mor- tality to date; and the forest's ef- forts at salvaging with timber sales. Forest Service personnel will be on the to.ur to explain Julia Honaker what is happening and answer Friars Hill questions. Lee District Ranger _~ John Coleman will be the host. Persons planning to make the tour will meet September I I in the parking lot at the Ramada Inn, 1130 Motel Drive in Wood- stock. Parking will be permitted in the motel lot behind the Tex- aco service station. The motel is visible from Interstate 81 behind McDonald's. The Forest Service will provide free transportation for persons making reservations. Individuals planning to make the trip should telephone the supervisor's office by August 30 at 433-2497, ex- tension 290 or 286. The tour will depart the motel parking lot promptly at 10 a.m. and return no later than 4 p.m. Visitors are urged to bring bag lunches. The tour will stop somewhere along the route to al- low participants to purchase a cold soft drink. "There have been a great many questions about the gypsy moth and its effects," Kelley said. "We hope this tour will help answer some of those ques- lions."
