Presence of Low Branches: * Many trees have reachable branches Some trees have reachable branches No trees or only a few trees have reachable branches Site Terrain Features (steepness, rolling, flat? etc.): * Water Features/Wet Conditions (near stream, lake, pond, swamp? Dry?): * Stand Composition (Hemlock dominated area? Hardwood-dominated? Other conifers?): * Approximate age class of trees in stand (mixed ages? young? old?): * Additional site comments (optional): Other Pests Sited (ie. elongate hemlock scale): HWA Information: HWA Presence/Absence: * No HWA found (skip next 2 questions and submit) HWA present HWA Density in Stand (average number of woolly masses per twig, or 2-5 inch section of branch): Low density (1-5 woolly masses per twig, lightly infested) Medium density (5-20 woolly masses per twig, moderate infestation) High density (20+ woolly masses per twig, heavy infestation) Hemlock Canopy Health <20% of canopy lost (80-100% of light blocked by canopy), health canopy with dense and deep green foliage 20-40% of canopy lost, still green but foliage beginning to thin 40-60% of canopy lost, foliage thinning, sickly-looking lower branches 60-80% of canopy lost, foliage thin with pale, greyish, sickly appearance >80% of canopy lost, sparse foliage with only some tufts or branch tips remaining Photo/Map Upload (optional): Uploading Files.
