Learn about the invasive species the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid, how to identify it, where it is, what the state is doing about it, and how you can help.

The Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) is an aphid-like insect native to Asia and was introduced to New York in the 1980's. HWA lives and feeds on hemlock trees and is spread by the wind, by birds, or by human or other animals. Hemlocks are considered a "keystone" species, meaning they play a critical ecological role. HWA infested trees can take as few as two years after the time of infestation until death, although 10-12 years is more common. Multiple efforts are underway to manage and combat HWA infestation and save this critical tree species.
