Woolly Adelgids Threaten Thousands of Signal Mountain & Cumberland Hemlocks
Eastern hemlock trees atop Signal Mountain and across the Cumberland Plateau are common right now, but many could die off in the next few years. The woolly adelgid, a tiny, invasive insect species originally from Asia, is spreading through the forest and slowly killing hemlocks. Dr. Jennifer Boyd from the Signal Mountain Tree Board says, “This is really all we've talked about for the past couple of months.” In this segment, we hear about potential solutions.
Dr. Boyd has an upcoming lecture about the woolly adelgid. The lecture is open to the public—everyone is invited; not just Signal Mountain residents. The lecture will take place at the Signal Mountain Library on Thursday, May 30th at 6:30 p.m.
