Eastern Hemlocks in Marcy’s Woods
Marcy’s Woods under attack? Could be. In May we will accompany scientist Sarah Leone in a walk in the Woods. A small, aphid-like insct the hemlock wooly adelgid is an attacker of our Eastern hemlock trees. Sarah will inspect our resident trees then. These insects can kill hemlocks. Hopefully they will be absent!
One sad note: Our 100 year old hemlock with its resident Witch’s Broom was cut down last year by the local power company. It was in the way of a new power line. The stump remains. Sad
