Cornell Cooperative Extension in partnership with NYSDEC will be hosting Charlotte Malmborg to present on the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid.

Hemlocks are one of the most important tree species in New York forests, but here in New York our hemlocks are threatened by an invasive forest pest, the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid. HWA reached New York in the 1980s and continues to spread today, infesting new areas each year.Hemlock Woolly Adelgid
In this talk, Charlotte will cover the importance of hemlock trees in northeastern forests, the threat presented by HWA, and what you can do to identify and manage HWA infestations in your neck of the woods. She will also give an introduction to the New York State Hemlock Initiative's research into biological control opportunities and the role of NYSHI in promoting hemlock conservation throughout the state.

There will also be a short field experience where participants will look at hemlocks and some of the common things that might be confused for HWA.

Charlotte Malmborg is a natural resources technician with the New York State Hemlock Initiative at Cornell University, where she lends her voice to improving science literacy regarding hemlock conservation efforts in the face of the hemlock woolly adelgid, an invasive forest pest. In addition to lecturing around the state, she also works with the field team to aid in NYSHI's research efforts. Previously Charlotte worked as a conservation corps member, a horticulturist, and a coordinator for environmental stewardship projects at a land trust, before joining NYSHI in July 2017.
