Conserving and Managing Hemlocks- In the Path of Hemlock Woolly Adelgid
This presentation will be recorded and sent out to all who register.
Mar 8, 2023 01:00 PM EST
Hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) is an invasive insect that is killing hemlock trees and threatening the health of our forests. HWA has been confirmed present in Oswego County and is believed to be spreading along the Eastern Lake Ontario Shoreline due to the warmer conditions along the water. HWA will have a big impact on our forests- as hemlock trees are a foundation species and provide many ecological benefits for people and nature. The good news is that there are conservation and management strategies you can implement to protect hemlock trees from HWA on your property or managed lands.
Join SLELO PRISM and the NYS Hemlock Initiative on March 8th from 1-2 PM for an informative webinar that will discuss short-term and long-term HWA control options, hemlock conservation strategies, and approaches to secure funding for hemlock conservation that has worked in other parts of the state at a watershed scale; regional and state-wide volunteer opportunities to help slow the spread of this threat to our forests will also be shared.
