The Maine Forest Service has surveyed for Browntail Moth (BTM) for decades. We have been fortunate that the numbers have been relatively low in most areas for much of the past decade providing relief for people and trees. But in the last several years we have been seeing a dramatic increase in the BTM population. This letter is to give notice to towns that have significant detected populations of BTM to facilitate response by towns and/ or their residents.
