Abstract

The hemlock woolly adelgid (Adelges tsugae, Annand), a pest of hemlocks introduced from Japan in the first half of the last century, threatens the sustainability of both eastern and Carolina hemlock (Tsuga canadensis and T. caroliniana, respectively) in eastern North America. Hemlock represents a key ecological component in eastern forests and threats to these trees represent threats to birds, mammals, and fish, and impact forest vegetation composition and species richness.
