CCC crews also treated 13,861,782 gypsy moth egg masses, destroyed 352,239 brown tail moth webs and destroyed 270,230 weeviled white pine tops.

The men destroyed 679,512 ribes in white pine blister rust control and collected 1,840,031 spruce sawfly cocoons.

And, as one former CCC enrollee said, "The CCC had a tremendous influence on my life providing me with experience I could not have got elsewhere."
