Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) is an aggressive, devastating invasive insect that kills a host tree in a few years. Our eastern hemlocks, which have little or no resistance to these infestations, have been hit hard by HWA in many areas south of the Adirondacks. In the Adirondack and Catskill Parks there are significant hemlock communities.
ADK is proud of our partnership with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell University
