The All-Important Tree


The hemlock forests of Maine are endangered by the hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA). The HWA is a parasitic nymph that bores into a hemlock tree’s bark to feed on the sap. HWA is spreading up the East Coast and preventive actions are being taken. A group of middle school aged students ventured into a coniferous forest and documented their findings on the HWA; nothing was found at the site of Telstar Middle School/High School on March, 30 at 8:50am.
