We got hammered the last 5 years in my area in MA. They are settling down quite a bit this year, but man did they kill some trees.We also had gypsy moths devastate a lot of the Oaks in various clusters in the area. Never seen it this bad before. I could stand in my yard at night when it was calm, and hear the collective "chewing" and turd balls falling like a light rain everywhere. I have several trees in my yard that look like they are 50% bare. Fortunately, it was in small clusters scattered about the area, not everywhere.
