Monthly Club Meeting - Save Georgia's Hemlocks

Save Georgia's Hemlocks

Hemlocks in north Georgia are being threatened by a spreading infestation of the hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA), an invasive insect native to Asia with no local natural predator.  Hemlock stands are among the only old growth forests in the east and are of great importance to wildlife, water quality, local economy, recreational interests, and basic quality of life.  At our February 3 meeting Donna Shearer, Chairman of Save Georgia's Hemlocks, will share information about this problem, what will happen if timely action isn't taken, what's being done on public lands, what property owners can do to save their own hemlocks, and what we can all (residents and non-residents alike) do to be part of the solution.

For more information, please visit www.savegeorgiashemlocks.org or call the Hemlock Help Line 706-429-8010."
