What are the local consequences of Eastern Hemlock trees and their lifespan? Join us to learn about a 10-year survey of Eastern Hemlock tree mortality along Route 2 in Massachusetts and Southern Vermont, undertaken by faculty and students at Holy Cross, to track the devastating effect the woolly adelgid has had on these majestic trees.
