HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. — Join the Hemlock Restoration Initiative and N.C. Cooperative Extension of Henderson County for a demonstration and presentation to learn the fundamentals of treating hemlock trees to protect them from the invasive insect, hemlock woolly adelgid. Today hemlock management is simpler and less expensive than ever before!
This program will teach landowners how to assess and treat their trees, giving them the tools necessary to manage their hemlocks’ health.
An indoor presentation will provide background and context for the field portion of the training, emphasizing the ecological importance of hemlocks, the biology of HWA, other hemlocks pests, and an overview of chemical and biological control methods.
We will use the trees present on the property to demonstrate and explain a variety of methods to chemically treat hemlocks available to all landowners in North Carolina.
Call the office to register at (828) 697-4891.
