Hemlocks are one of the most important tree species in the northeast forest. The role they play is crucial to the regions they exist in. Hemlocks are also under attack by the hemlock woolly adelgid, an invasive insect that is now established in our region. Come and learn about the threat this forest pest poses for New York’s forests. This training will focus on correctly identifying hemlock trees and hemlock woolly adelgid in the field, management techniques for landowners and land managers, biocontrol opportunities, and how to volunteer with us to conserve hemlocks in your area.
Presented by: Charlotte Malmborg, New York State Hemlock Initiative.
