Hemlocks Saved

An adult hemlock woolly adelgid is shown on a hemlock twig.

Conservation experts have successfully prevented an invasive species from spreading to, and killing, thousands of hemlock trees in three parks in Grand Haven.

Hemlocks in Lake Forest Cemetery, Duncan Memorial Park and Mulligan’s Hollow were facing a dangerous hemlock woolly adelgig (HWA) infestation that feeds on the tree’s sap and kills the tree in anywhere from 7-10 years, according to conservation experts.
