State of Maine: Mission Hemlock Woolly Adelgid


The State of Maine Forest Service has launched a Vital Signs Campaign to engage the public in identifying Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) in the Coastal Regions of the State.

Allison Kanoti of the Maine Forest Service has done a great job providing tools and information to help citizens, students, educators and scientists gather data on the spread of HWA.  Even those outside the state can benefit from this tremendous resource.

Tree-Savers is proud to provide the State of Maine with S.tsugae beetles to support their successful efforts to bring HWA under control. Early detection and identification of target areas for S.tsugae beetle release are critical success factors.  By combining effective biological control and community engagement, the Maine Forest Service is leading the way in protecting their hemlock forest ecosystems from the devastation of HWA infestatation.

Vital Signs is an innovative  program developed by the Gulf of Maine Research Institute to engage communities in scientific research to support environmental protection and restoration efforts across the State of Maine.
