New York State Hemlock Initiative

Keeping the legacy alive

NYS Hemlock Initiative in the Finger Lakes

The NYS Hemlock Initiative is based at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY, and has funding from the US Forest Service to coordinate management of hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) in the Finger Lakes region. We are reaching out to organizations and individuals to fill gaps in survey efforts for HWA, help with biocontrol establishment, prioritize the Finger Lakes’ hemlock stands for monitoring and treatment, and work together to develop a management plan for HWA in the Finger Lakes region.

Visit our Get Involved page to learn more about how you can participate in efforts to save New York’s hemlocks.
