Northern Research Station
April Feature - Don't Bug Me!
Beginning with early colonists who landed in the New World loaded with dreams, grit and perhaps the continent’s first alien forest pests, and continuing today with the expansion of global trade, the northeastern United States has been ground zero for damaging non-native forest pest invasions. This month, we feature a scientist, research, a product and a partnership focused on forest pests that have found their way to our neck of the woods, and Northern Research Station scientists’ work to stop their spread.
