hemlock adelgid
« on: May 06, 2018, 06:54:41 AM »
I have 25 acres of predominantly hemlock, sugar maple, and some red oak.  Adelgid showed up a few years ago.  How many years have I got to get my hemlock out of the woods?  I'm 68, working with a pto winch.  I haven't seen any of the white stuff under the needles in the last 3 years.  Will I get the hemlock out before I'm too old to work in the woods?
