Last summer, many of us on Birch Island witnessed the complete loss of leaves from some of our favourite trees, thousands of caterpillars crawling everywhere and frass raining down from the trees. 

 Most of our trees should recover in 2022 but there are serious concerns that repeated infestations could cause lasting damage to our island.

 BIRPOA, your lake association, is preparing an information session on Gypsy Moth (now called LDD Moth) Infestations.  Topics will include:

·   What are LDD moths and how did they get here;

·   What harms do they cause;

·   What can we do about it – the benefits of spraying and other preventions

·   Environmental concerns: spraying vs tree destruction

All islanders are invited to this important Zoom session to be held:

Thursday January 27th, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. eastern.

Please plan to connect with us.

 An invitation including a Zoom link will be sent a few days before the session. You will need to download the Zoom app ahead of the meeting. (There is no charge) .
