I see a lot of the Eastern Tent Caterpillars while hiking the Ouachita National Forest here in Arkansas during the spring.
The Eastern Tent Caterpillar is of some importance as a pest because it defoliates ornamental trees. Damaged trees, however, typically recover and refoliate within several weeks.
