Protect the Hemlocks! Fence Raising at Thorn

  • Thorn Preserve 55 John Joy Road Woodstock, NY, 12498 United States (map)

Four years ago, the Catskill Center planted four rows of young hemlocks, as a future biological control release location for hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA). These trees will grow into a thick hedgerow which promotes easy recollection of the beetle Laricobius nigrinus, a target-specific predator of HWA.

On October 6th, we will be repairing the fence that has protected the hemlocks from deer herbivory, to keep these trees healthy as they grow. Come help us protect the hemlocks, and learn about the invasive species that are spreading throughout the Catskills, as well as what you can do to help keep your hemlocks alive.
