Our native eastern and Carolina hemlocks are being attacked and killed by an invasive insect pest, the hemlock woolly adelgid. Hemlocks are found throughout north Georgia, and you may have them on your property.

But good news – help is available! Open the link below to see what can be done to preserve these mighty trees.
