In the interview Margot and Thom give an overview of hemlocks, some background on the biology of HWA, a discussion of current and future strategies to combat HWA, and the history and future of the HRI program. Thanks to Fusion Forest host, Leif Olsen, for featuring hemlocks and HRI on his show. We thoroughly enjoyed our conversation with Leif and hope you will tune in.
