White-Marked Tussock Moth caterpillars are fuzzy with pom poms and very long hairs. They like open woodlands and shade. In great numbers can cause damage to trees. Prefers deciduous trees such as cherry, birch and apple. (Not to be touched because the hairs can cause an allergic reaction to the skin.) Small, around 1 1/2 inches long at the most. Eastern, Pennsylvania. (Lucky to find one with yellowish pom poms and one with white pom poms.)
