Keeping the Legacy Alive


Our Mission

We promote research, management, and outreach in an effort to conserve Nova Scotia's hemlock resources in the face of the invasive insect hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA). Our goal is to provide information to concerned landowners, government agencies, and the general public to encourage the preservation of hemlock.


A Landowner's Introduction to Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA)

Nova Scotia's Eastern Hemlock is a foundational species in Eastern Canada and some of the last remaining old-growth forests. they perform unique ecological functions. HWA is a small, invasive, aphid-like pest that causes decline and eventual death to our Eastern hemlock. HWA was first identified in Nova Scotia in 2017. 

This brochure gives landowners an introduction to this invasive pest.
