Our Hemlocks can be Saved!
BRNN presents “Save the Hemlocks” on Tuesday Feb. 21, 2017
West Asheville Library
Our native Eastern and Carolina Hemlocks are being ravaged by a tiny non-native insect: the hemlock woolly adelgid. Margot Wallston and Sara deFossett, of the Hemlock Restoration Initiative, will describe how the organization is taking steps to help the trees resist the adelgids and survive to maturity, eventually restoring health and vitality to damaged forest ecosystems.
