Hemlock Woolly Adelgid is an invasive forest pest killing hemlock trees across the Eastern Seaboard. You can help protect the future of Adirondack forests by supporting early detection, rapid response efforts to prevent the spread of these harmful insects. Become a trained citizen scientist, adopt trails to steward, and stop Hemlock Woolly Adelgid in its tracks. The scouting season typically runs fall through late winter, annually (based on insect activity year-to-year).
