HWA Kills Trees, and it is here, in Northwestern PA
Learn more about the threat, and how to treat your own trees. This event is free to all, but space is limited – RSVP kelly @ cookforestconservancy.org, or via facebook, to join specialists on invasive insects for information on at-home treatment for Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA), including:
- the importance of helmock
- the reduced cost of treatment (far less than removing dead trees!)
- different treatment methods, including:
- overview of available pesticides, chemical and insect;
- which is best for a given situation; and
- the best seasons for treatments
followed by an on-site session during which attendees can actually apply the treatment – this single application will protect each target hemlock for seven years!
RSVP reply will include further details – we’ll be at Shelter #1 off Forest Road (the map should get you close enough to see us! First right past the park office along Forest Road, before Breezemont and the double turn-offs at the Log Cabin Inn & Longfellow/ Forest Cathedral trailheads).
