The Pests:

Hemlock woolly adelgid

is a tiny insect destroying a vital part of our forests. The eastern hemlock is our state tree and has been in decline for years, without much notice, thanks to this invasive insect. You have never seen them, but you can help stop the damage.

Emerald ash borer

has killed 40 million ash trees nation-wide and has been our state since 2007. Without realizing it, many people have helped spread this shiny green bug, but we can still manage it and protect our ash trees.

Spotted lanternfly

is the newest threat we face. Even though it is a recent invader, the SLF poses a great danger to our outdoor life and even our economy. It is crucial people have the tools to prevent the spread of SLF.
