Natural Areas Association Webinar: Hope for the Hemlocks
May 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) is a tiny, invasive insect killing millions of hemlock trees and threatening water quality, wildlife habitat, and forest health in eastern North America. Recent advances in research and developments in HWA management options give natural areas managers and private landowners new tools they can use to protect their hemlock forests. This presentation will focus on the management strategies being implemented in North Carolina by the Hemlock Restoration Initiative (HRI) and its partners. This webinar will discuss HRI’s cross-boundary collaboration and partnerships in active HWA management, including projects with land trusts and private communities as well as work with state and federal agencies. These efforts have built on previous work to chemically protect hemlocks and integrate biological controls of HWA on public and private lands and have improved the outlook for the future of hemlocks in North Carolina and beyond.
