  • 2:00 pm: Presentation of "New York State Hemlock Initiative" by Charlotte Malmborg, Cornell University Department of Natural Resources.

Re the 2 pm presentation: Hemlocks are one of the most important tree species in New York forests, but here in New York our hemlocks are threatened by an invasive forest pest, the hemlock woolly adelgid. HWA reached New York in the 1980s and continues to spread today, infesting new areas each year. In this talk Charlotte will cover the importance of hemlock trees in northeastern forests, the threat presented by HWA, and what you can do to identify and manage HWA infestations in your woodlot. She will also talk about the New York State Hemlock Initiative's research into biocontrol opportunities and its role in promoting hemlock conservation throughout the state.
