Description: Eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis) is the most shade-tolerant and long-lived tree species in Eastern North America. Its unsurpassed ability to tolerate low light enables it to form dense canopies and stands that provide a unique habitat for many plant and wildlife species. Carolina hemlock (Tsuga caroliniana) is a relic species limited to a small area in the southern range of eastern hemlock. Both species are being threatened by the accidentally introduced hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae).

Keywords: hwa, hemlock woolly aldegid, hemlock woolly adelgid disease, hemlock woolly adelgid control, hemlock woolly adelgid management, saving hemlocks,
