Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Management Workshop

Hemlock trees are a precious resource in New York State, contributing to healthy stream ecosystems, water quality, and recreation. Hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) is an invasive insect that is spreading throughout the Catskills region, threatening to wipe out this valuable tree species. In this all-day workshop, we discuss the background of the HWA infestation, the insect’s unique biology, and the benefits and disadvantages of available management and treatment methods. We will also offer training in phenological surveys and free reporting tools for hemlock woolly adelgid, which help better target control methods for the invasive insect. We will finish the training with a practical demonstration and practice session of HWA survey methods.
