Managing hemlock woolly adelgid on Mount Desert Island
Hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) is an invasive insect forest pest, native to Asia, which has devastated hemlock forests in the southern Appalachian region. It has been moving north since its accidental introduction in the 1950s and has recently been confirmed in multiple hemlock stands on MDI. The webinar presenters are working together on a multi-pronged approach to mitigate the impact of HWA on land they manage and on private properties. Learn about HWA and its effects on the environment, what we are doing on MDI, and most importantly, what you can do about HWA on your property.
