Description: In order to increase hemlock survivability in stands threatened by hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA), a new study is developing silvicultural thinning guidelines to reduce stand densities, reallocate resources, and increase hemlock vigor across a range of stand types and structures before HWA invasion. The 7 study areas are all geographically similar in that they regularly experience winter temperatures that can be lethal to hemlock woolly adelgid. The combined effects of climate and silvicultural treatment may serve to moderate adelgid populations and increase hemlock survival.

Keywords: hemlock woolly adelgid, silvicultural thinning, stocking, foliar nutrients
