      EVENT DETAILS
      Hemlock Conservation & Restoration with Margot Wallston and a representative from the Asheville-based Hemlock Restoration Initiative

      Utilizing the outstanding hemlock population at the Botanical Gardens as a framework for our conversation, representatives from the Hemlock Restoration Initiative (HRI) will discuss current hemlock management occurring in this region.

      The talk will begin with a walk around the gardens so that participants can become familiar with our native hemlocks, their role as a foundation species within the ecosystems where they grow, and learn how to evaluate tree health. Participants will then move indoors to learn more about the hemlock woolly adelgid, management options, and the ongoing work of the HRI. Interested participants are welcome to stay after the talk to ask questions and view various hemlock treatment application methods and products.

      Cost: Payment required - Participants must pre-register and pre-pay for classes. Call 828-252-5190. Cost for the workshop is $15 for BGA members, $20 for non-members. Class is limited to 24 participants.
