Protecting Appalachian Forests: Treatment of the Eastern Hemlock

The Wooly Adelgid Aphid poses a catastrophic threat to hemlock trees of the Appalachians — but with consistent treatment, hemlocks can survive this invasive threat. Lend a hand in the Hemlock Treatment Program as you join experts from the Mountain Lake Conservancy and Kentland Farm Research Facility at Virginia Tech in the treatment of hemlocks and the removal of invasive plants and parasites. Spend a week atop Salt Pond Mountain exploring a unique ecosystem tucked in the ancient Appalachian Mountains.
