The Allison-Deaver House in Pisgah Forest will host the Hemlock Restoration Initiative from 2-3pm on Sunday September 9th, 2018 for an informational talk all about hemlocks. We will be talking about the importance of hemlocks in the western North Carolina ecosystem and the challenges they are facing. This talk will focus on hemlock management strategies and discuss what resources are available to homeowners in Transylvania County, including an exciting Cost Share program which provides financial savings for hemlock treatment.

This event is designed to serve as background for a hands-on treatment workshop scheduled for October 27th.  See Events page for details.

RSVP for the presentation is requested by Wednesday, September 5th to: or call the HRI office at (828) 252-4783

Anyone is welcome to attend one or both events. However, the workshop on October 27th will not cover the information presented on September 9th. Attendance at both events is strongly encouraged.
