Southampton is a wooded community. As such, Gypsy Moth infestation is always a risk, and some years, it can be a public emergency. In the event of an emergency, outbreak or potential outbreak, up-to-date information will be posted on this page.
Even during non-emergency situations, home and landowners should make themselves aware of the risks of Gypsy Moth, how to recognize the larva, how to report potential outbreaks and ways to safe and legally protect their trees.
