Scientists seek public’s help to aid trees

The Tiny Terrors project is part of the Alliance for Saving Threatened Forests, a regional effort devoted to developing trees that are able to survive attacks of both balsam and hemlock woolly adelgids. Pictured are hemlock woolly adelgid ovisacs on the underside of a branch.

North Carolina State University scientists are seeking the public’s help in identifying hemlock and Fraser fir trees that appear to be able to resist insects that are killing many of the trees.
