821 Hemlock Trees Inspected for Woolly Adelgid

Partners of the St. Lawrence Eastern Lake Ontario PRISM and their early detection team recently embarked on an intense effort to survey hemlock stands in the southern Tug Hill region. The purpose was to detect the presence or absence of the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid in the area. 821 hemlock trees surrounding the PRISM's Tug Hill I.S.P.Z. (Invasive Species Prevention Zone) were surveyed. So far, no adelgids have been observed.
