Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Control

Common throughout the Northeast, Canadian hemlock is an evergreen tree with a loose natural form and dark green foliage.  Widely used in the urban landscape, these trees provide thorough privacy and shading. Hemlock woolly adelgid is an insect pest which arrived in Massachusetts in 1988 and has been spreading ever since.  It is most easily identified by its cottony appearance on the underside of needles.  If left untreated, it will kill infected trees.  If you have a hemlock(s) you care about or a hedge you would really miss, speak with one of our certified arborists to learn what can be done to protect and preserve them.
