Thank you for your interest in our hemlock treatment workshops. See registration instructions below.
We currently have the following workshop(s) open for registration:
- Sept. 20th, 2019: Camp Carolina Hemlock Treatment Workshop
- Oct. 18th, 2019: Christmount Hemlock Treatment Workshop
- Nov. 9th, 2019: Bethel Hemlock Treatment Workshop at Lake Logan Conference Center
Our full-day Hemlock Treatment Workshops are intended to train private landowners and land managers in hemlock health assessment and treatment. Attendees will be able to use the information and techniques learned to perform easy, low cost hemlock treatments. These workshops cover how to determine when this approach is appropriate, as well as other hemlock management options for a range of situations. This opportunity is made possible thanks to funds and support from the NC Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services and the North Carolina Forest Service.
The day involves a combination of indoor classroom-style presentation and discussion and outdoor hands-on practice.
Topics will include:
- How to identify HWA and assess tree health
- Easy and affordable DIY treatment methods
- Hemlock management in forested vs. landscape settings
- When to seek professional help
